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

The Tank Murdock fight was shot at The Denver Brick Company. The spectators sit on cubes of brick, and the glow from the round kiln is visible. See more »
Two bass players playing with Sandra Locke's country band in bar. One standing up front and one sitting down by drummer. Unusual unless you're Spinal Tap. See more »

Well, I don't suppose you know of a Ladies room hereabouts?
There all over. Just pick one.
[Echo heads for the nearest Ladies room]
She's something, ain't she?
She sure is. You're full of all kinds of surprises these days.
Well... Say... Listen, I wanna say that I appreciate your making her feel to home.

There's something out there. My God! It's horrible. It a monster! I've never see it. It's not even a bear!

This is my childhood film of which I have seen hundreds of times. Although originally Clint Eastwood was told by many friends and co-workers not to play a part in this film, it turned out a success due to its down to earth humour and a well selected cast. Watch this film to see a different approach to Clint Eastwood's work, as he lives a relaxed and happy life with his ape 'Clyde'.
The sequel to this film is just as good as the first one, with new characters and well supported music that suits the period as well as the film. They have finally released both films on DVD in England and is worth the investment for a classic collection.
