A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
Nun Sara is on the run in Mexico and is saved from cowboys by Hogan, who is preparing for a future mission to capture a French fort. The pair become good friends, but Sara never does tell him the true reason behind her being outlawed.
Philo Beddoe is an easy-going trucker and a great fist-fighter. With two friends - Orville, who promotes prize-fights for him, and Clyde, the orangutan he won on a bet - he roams the San Fernando Valley in search of cold beer, country music and the occasional punch-up. But he is floored himself by a dainty little country and western singer, who gives him the slip when she realizes he's getting too serious. Phil, Clyde and Orville set off in pursuit, pestered by bikers. Written by

Sondra Locke learned that she was pregnant just as production was wrapping up. Locke had her IUD removed some years earlier after Clint Eastwood complained that the IUD was uncomfortable for him, and the couple had been practicing the rhythm method. Sondra reluctantly agreed to an abortion, "a hard and painful decision" in her words. When she became pregnant again in 1979, Clint voiced concerns for her health and suggested sterilization. "I think it would be the best thing for our life together. Aren't I enough for you?" Locke's autobiography quotes Eastwood as saying. Then she began to cry. "Funny how it never even crossed my mind to ask HIM to have surgery." She underwent a second abortion and subsequent tubal ligation at UCLA Medical Center. To console her, Eastwood sold the Sherman Oaks bungalow where they had resided and bought a dream house in Bel Air. "This home would be my baby," Locke wrote. Although they remained together another decade (towards the end of which Clint sired someone else's two children, unbeknownst to Sondra), from her perspective their relationship never fully recovered from the abortions.

When the Black Widows surround Lynn Halsey-Taylor as she is driving out of the gas station, the sound of a pump-action shotgun being "racked" comes from the trailer. When the gang leader looks over, it's a double-barreled shotgun that doesn't need to be "racked" for loading. See more »
[Biker's Theme sax intro; Elmo enters the Widow compound]
You're late, pretty boy. I don't believe this.
Damn, I've never knowed nobody who hit so hard or so fast.
Yeah. He could've been Denver Tank Murdock.
Sound like him?
Don't know. Didn't get to see him so close as Elmo.
[Dallas and Woody laugh]
At least I didn't drop my bike and run.
Yeah, like you two, goofy suckers!

a truly classic film , which shows Clint in a different light and can truly act. very enjoyable family film, despite the fact that it is now 28 years old , the kids loved it. another generation now enjoying this funny film with the ape Clyde stealing most scenes. the fight scenes are very well choreographed, the film is fast moving and keeps you interested to see what happens.The film is highly recommended for family viewing , especially on a weekend. the music and songs will stick in your mind, especially the title song every which way but loose, which really goes hand in hand with the film and truly complements it. one definitely to watch.
