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

The movie and its sequel Any Which Way You Can (1980) used the catchy "Clint and Clyde" first-name alliteration of its two main stars in its promotions and marketing. In true Hollywood style, Eastwood here received top first billing as he was the bigger star whilst the orangutan Manis had to settle for second billing. See more »

[Philo takes Lynn back to her trailer after the attempt on them by Schuyler... Philo parks the truck and prepares to get out... Lynn stops him]
Philo... I'm scared.
Don't worry... I'm not going to let anything happen to you.
That's not what I'm afraid of. I'm afraid for Schuyler... please don't hurt him!
Well, that sonofabitch tried to blow my head off and he didn't even care that you were sitting next to me!
That's just it! He was trying to scare you! He doesn't even know how to shoot!

EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE (1978) *** Clint Eastwood, Sondra Locke,RuthGordon, Geoffrey Lewis, Beverly D' Angelo. Rollickingly funny comedy with Clint as tough-guy Philo Beddoe and his best friend, Clyde the scene- stealing orangutan and Gordon stealing scenes from both as Philo's feisty ma. Plot is simple: Philo has fallen in love with country/western songstress Locke and entails some adventures in his pursuit. Lewis lends some able, amiable support as Philo's best bud and fellow beer drinking good ol' boy. Fine jukebox offering of C&W and filmed on location in sunny Bakersfield, California.
Redneck humor was never this pugnacious!
