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

According to the book "Clint Eastwood: Hollywood's Loner" (1992) by Michael Munn, Clint Eastwood said of fellow co-star Clyde the Orangutan: "Clyde was one of the most natural actors I ever worked with! But you had to get him on the first take because his boredom level was very limited". See more »
In the scene at the lake, when Pilo jumps out of the tree, he stands up and does a Tarzan impression. The sound is not heard until the view cuts to looking across the lake. See more »
[Herb is near the lake looking for his partner]
Putnam! Big dumb galoot. Putnam, where are ya? Dummy.
[the camera pans up to Philo, who is crouching on a pine branch. He then jumps right on Herb, blowing a few punches at him. Philo then victoriously raises his hands up and down repeatedly and make the famous "Tarzan Call", which can be heard throughout the entire lake, where Orville and Echo are fishing at]
What was that?
I think he's spending too much time with Clyde.

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.
