Paint Your Wagon

Anybody who wants to see Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood singing solos (using their real voices) in a musical then come on down! Truthfully, Marvin and Eastwood are terrible singers that would not have gone far on Broadway, but considering they're so good in their roles (minus the singing), it's almost forgivable! Besides, Clint Eastwood singing while strumming on a guitar ought to be considered a novelty! This is the film version of the successful Broadway musical of the same name. It's about two gold-diggers (Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood) during the Gold Rush who become partners meaning they split the gold and share the wife (I'm still not sure how that one worked out so nicely!) It's a fun musical/comedy that works despite the lack of descent vocal chords.
