Chorus Line Pans For Gold

by mehaul on Feb 25, 2010

TITLE: Paint Your Wagon GENRE: Musical Comedy CAST: Lee Marvin, Jean Seberg, Clint Eastwood, Ray Walston PLOT: Anecdotal snippet of a drifter's collision with the California Gold Rush. Based on Lerner and Loewe's Broadway musical. Marvin plays drifter Ben Rumson who discovers gold while burying a fallen farmer by a streambed. A town, No Name City, grows around the find. Along the way there is romance, singing and mayhem. One singing scene has around 100 panners stream bathing in unison. This is Clint's adventure as a singing cowboy. Thank gawd he failed and went to Italy and spaghetti Western History. A great song is "They call the Wind Mariah". But the one that sums up this movie the best is the title song with lyrics of "Where am I going? I don't know. When will I get there? I don't care. All I know is I am on my way". Marvin's croaking of "I Was Born Under A Wandering Star" was a chart topper in the UK. RETURN ON INVESTMENT:7.5 of 10 The music is first rate, the set is the High Sierras, the costumes are authentic but it's hard to imagine all the choreography juxtaposed with a mining operation. (it's so enjoyably long there is an intermission) . DVD BONUS: Come on, it's Eastwood as a singing cowboy.


excellent movie

This movie is one of my favs...ever. Listening to Clint eastwood and Lee Marvin sing about gold and "fanciful women" is well worth the time and money. Very funny movie.
