According to Final Cut: The Making and Unmaking of Heaven's Gate (2004), Clint Eastwood did not like to do anymore than three takes for a shot. Jeff Bridges said, "I would always go to Mike [Michael Cimino] and say 'I think I can do one more. I got an idea.' And Mike would say 'I gotta ask Clint.' Clint would say, 'Give the kid a shot.'" Moreover, First assistant director Charles Okun added, "Clint was the only guy that ever said 'No'. Michael said 'OK, let's go for another take.'If it was take four, Clint would say 'No we got enough. We got it.'...And if [Cimino] took too long to get it ready, [Eastwood] would say, 'It's good, let's go.'" See more »

I think this movie gets lost in all the commercial Clint Eastwood vehicles,it far surpasses most of his 70's attempts. This is mostly due to Cimino's script and Bridges acting and honest words.This is far more than a buddy picture,rather one of the greatest love stories on film(all homosexual connotations aside),taking the male relationship in film to new levels because of the contrast of characters and there immediate like for one another.Skipped is most of the bickering used in lessor buddy flicks instead great interaction between the two and Clint still gets to shine as one of the coolest tough guys of the 70's.Great cinematography coupled with beautiful backdrops and a fine supporting cast make this a must see.
