No name city was built in the Wallawa Mts. outside Baker City, Oregon, and a call went out for "longhairs" to act as extras. Hippies were big on authentic Western costume and could supply their own wardrobe right down to the guns (yes, these hippies were armed to the teeth). They came with wives, kids, big dogs and bigger trucks and settled in for the summer, fall, winter, spring, and...I believe...a second summer. Everything you see in this movie is REAL...the poker game in the background, the French whores (imported from Paris, and yes, they plied their trade on the set and in hotels in Baker), the antiques, the long hair and handlebar moustaches. The opium den and bootleg liquor. All real and functioning. After the filming, there was a showing in Portland of the rough movie for the extras, and it was heartbreakingly beautiful. The Norman Luboff choir was not yet dubbed in and the music WAS the extras singing, and we got to hear Jean Seburg sing her part, and the SCALE of it was monumental....you really got the feeling of this tiny place lost in the Westerm wilderness. It was wonderful...makes me angry/sad to see the finished movie as cut in LA...the studio did their best to turn it into a routine and banal Broadway musical. Wish you fans could have seen it as I did in 1969.

Thirty years ago when I as a young buck watched this movie, it was a delightful surprise. That Lee Marvin was so funny. You never forget that first kiss,well you never forget that first really uncontrollable laugh either. Lee Marvin, like alot of heavies, had a gift for comedy. The part of the movie when Marvin thinks he is in hell is so classic. The closing song is bittersweet. It is hard to say good-bye to all the great characters. Ah to be so young and innocent again!

When first released--even in the era of "free love"--PAINT YOUR WAGON raised eyebrows. A major studio releasing a big budget musical about an immoral California mining town where two men are married to the same woman? How gosh!
Cast aside any moral timidity and simply have fun watching this entertaining, rowdy film. Lee Marvin is a hoot as drunken, pretentious Ben Rumson--Clint Eastwood totally in over his head as the more down-to-earth 'Pardner.' Both actors share some memorable moments as they "partner up" on everything they own: including Ben's wife, Elizabeth (Jean Seberg, whose untimely death following the film's release was indeed tragic).
The supporting cast, including Ray Walston and Tom Ligon, is outstanding; the "music"--if you can call it that--is uneven and very forgettable (with the glowing exception of "They Call the Wind Maria," sung by Harve Presnell). From brothels to bulls and bears, from gold dust to greed and lust, pull up a chair and let PAINT YOUR WAGON haul you away to No Name City.

This is the Lee Marvin I love and wish I could have met. I love him in Gorky Park as well, but to a lesser extent.
The movie has some flaws, like Jean Seberg, the unbelievably corny man who sings "They Call the Wind Maria" in an operatic voice, the ending isn't too satisfying either - but everything else is fantastic.
The musical score is great. I heard (can't swear to it) that it's from the same composer who wrote the score for "My Fair Lady". Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin are no professional singers, but I can't imagine anyone else but Eastwood singing "Gold Fever", or anyone but Marvin singing "I Was Born Under a Wondering Star", two personal favourites of mine.
You can't miss the hypocritical Parson, the wonderful No Name City where the story unfolds, the deeply religious boy who is "corrupted" by Marvin, his friendship with Eastwood's character, the wittiness and humour of the dialogues...It's all as good as it gets.
And, like Mary Poppins (another musical), it's a movie with a deeply subversive and irreverent underlying message, only "Mary..." was more about challenging authority and thinking for yourself, no matter what your age is - while this movie is more in the lines of challenging society's moral rules about relationships and marriage, and about how there can be deep tenderness between straight men. Now that homophobia is luckily not the norm anymore and same sex love can be depicted on film, just making a movie where there is so much, and so touching a friendship between two men, is almost bizarrely original and fresh.

This review refers to the Paramount "Widescreen Collection" DVD Edition of "Paint Your Wagon"....
In the gold-mining town of "No Name City"(Clint gets a name in this one but the town doesn't),Ben Rumson(Lee Marvin) and "Pardner"(Clint Eastwood)have a 50/50 relationship all the way. They split the gold they find, they pay each other's debt's off, and pick each other up from druken stupors. Pardner seems to be doing most of the work on that end of things though!
The town is filled with burly men, who haven't seen a woman in quite a while...That is until some Morman's come to town. The husband has one more wife than he needs and auctions Elizabeth(Jean Seberg) off to the men. The winner? Ben Rumson of course. But partners share everything you know...so Ben, Pardner, and Elizabeth become a trio.They just seem to fit right into this town without scruples.
The raucous action, the laughs and the wonderful music by Lerner and Lowe,Andre Previn, and even the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, are non-stop.There's the kidnapping of prostitutes to "improve" the town,a scheme hatched to collect lost gold,and a religious family comes to town that leads to some hilarious situations, and may change the whole atmosphere of the bawdy town.Some of the marvelous songs you'll be treated to(and may be humming for a couple of days after) are "Paint Your Wagon","No Name City", "I Talk to The Trees"(sung by none other then Eastwood himself), and "Born Under a Wandrin Star"(sung by Marvin)...Okay so Clint and Lee's vocal stylings are not my reason for giving 5 stars to this film!But you will be mesmerized by Harve Presnell's beautiful rendition of "They Call the Wind Mariah"!
