Twitter Timewarp Tuesday – Paint Your Wagon

I watched Paint Your Wagon. It was a long, arduous process, that I would have never gotten through, if I hadn’t been playing around with my phone during it.

In case you don’t know, Paint Your Wagon is a musical about cowboys, starring Lee Marvin, Clint Eastwood and Jean Seberg and it is awful.

I always thought this was just a joke, because it just seems like a really, really bad idea for a film.

Don’t play this drinking game. You will die.

Clint Eastwood acts all gentle and cute in this film. It’s really disconcerting.

Seriously, it’s too cute.

Nothing like a bunch of grizzled, gruff cowboys tenderly slow-dancing together.

Someone has actually told me that I look like a mountain man in real life.

This was really, really icky.

And the, 5 months later…

…I decided to continue with this awful movie for some reason.

This was really, really icky  as well.

Though, I suppose in frontier times, a cabin was a pretty big deal.

Just ickiness all around.

First, you get the women, then you get the money, then you get the power.

Clint Eastwood’s singing hurts my brains.

Anything goes in the wild Old West.

I believe this is the first time I’ve ever seen an intermission on a DVD. I went and got a snack.

It was the style of the time.

I think this was probably a joke, or it was a magic beaded curtain.

There was a thing about a bear fighting a bull. Maybe something about bear markets and bull markets?

Symbolism! It’s amazing!

Seriously, I watched all 900 hours of this waiting for the part where they paint the wagon and it never happened.

Well, that was pretty disappointing.
