Philo takes part in a bare knuckle fight - as he does - to make some more money than he can earn from his car repair business. He decides to retire from fighting, but when the Mafia come along and arrange another fight, he is pushed into it. A motorcycle gang and an orangutan called Clyde all add to the 'fun'. Written by

One of Clint Eastwood
's most successful films at the box-office. So was the movie's precursor Every Which Way But Loose

In the exterior (parking lot) scene when Philo's mother arrives at the Pink Cloud Motel and catches the booking clerk peeping in the window of Cloud 8, the door of Cloud 7 is visible and has the hinges at the left-hand side, its lock and handle on the right-hand side, and a sign saying 'Cloud 7' to the right of the doorframe. This is the room that Luther and Loretta Quince are in. A few minutes later, after Orville rams the Quinces' car and the police cars pursuing him frighten off the heavies, Luther peeps out the door of Cloud 7 and reports back to Loretta, "Somebody just bashed into our car, honeybunch." At this point, the door is hinged on the right-hand side and the 'Cloud 7' sign is on the wall to its left. See more
