And the wallet-snatching Big Red (portrayed by ex pinup girl Meg Myles):


In her case, isn't it said that she was stood up by someone, so that's why she's there alone at the hotel? So if she's a prostitute, the hotel worker must be in on it.

That sure does remind me of my next door neighbor when me and my bride moved into our first apartment. Same come hither look.

Thanks for the memories.

What about Shirley MacLaine in Two Mules for Sister Sara?  Does she qualify?

I'll post the Paint Pros image next, since I'm posting them in order.



Paint Pros sounds like a legitimate painting business.

I think in the Survivor game we'll keep them as a group, because I don't think any of them have names or speaking lines.

The name Gracie is given for one of them, but you don't see which one she is. You only see her arm and hear her voice in the scene where Ben gives the young guy over to the girl ("I give you the boy, give me back the man" or something along those lines).

But keeping them as a group makes sense.

Now that we have the official word of our local Paint Your Wagon expert, so declared... the Paint Your Wagon Prostitutes (hereafter known as the Paint Pros) will be voted on as a group when we start the Eastwood Prostitute Survivor game!

I have yet to watch Coogan's Bluff for the Challenge, but going by memory, I agree with mgk on both Millie and Linny. I've never thought of either one as prostitutes. But Matt makes some good points. I'll concentrate on this issue when I watch the movie.


So, did you have any other thoughts about Linny after watching it again?

Yes, on both Milly and Linnie. I don't think either is a hooker. I think they are two healthy women who enjoy sex with men other than their stable partners. Linny probably got into trouble with the law basically for this reason; the men she likes tend to be petty criminals, so she was arrested on some minor charge and got assigned a probation officer who would be especially careful of her "dating" behavior. Millie is known to the Sheriff, so Coogan may not be the only one of his men who knows where she leaves a spare key, but I don't think either she or Linny is turning tricks with random strangers who approach and offer money, which is basically how I would define a prostitute. Remember, this was the dawn of the Sexual Revolution and I think that was part of the film's point. Behavior was changing. Even an addled old woman like Mrs. Fowler ("He tried to rape me too!") is aware of this and subconsciously wants in on it, though she can't get past the stage of thinking "impure thoughts" about the men she meets.

Big Red, on the other hand ... 100% hooker, and yes, the hotel personnel (at least the bellboy) are in on it.

Another thought I had about Coogan's Bluff: Why does Ringerman's rap sheet describe him as blond and blue-eyed?


Also, since we've accounted for three possible prostitutes ... who is the "hooker" in the IMDb cast list, played (uncredited) by Eve Brent?

(picture from aveleyman.com, but not for this role)

I'm more confused now than before.  :-[

I looked it up, and the book Aim for the Heart, the Films of Clint Eastwood by Howard Hughes, has that Eve Brent is who I posted as "Big Red", the hooker in the pink dress.



So, that would mean that the Prostitute isn't "Big Red".  I thought she was, well, because, eh hem... Meg Myles is known for her big, well, her rather large assets, and she had red hair in the film.



I looked at "Big Red" and her face looked like a match, but she didn't look as big as her legend (yes I noticed). ::)

So, who the hell is Big Red (Meg Myles) if she's not the Prostitute?

Also, I meant to post it earlier ... in Hang 'em High, there are more than two prostitutes. Madame "Peaches" Sophie has a stable of at least seven in her "Rooming House":





... though only "Jennifer" has a name or any dialogue.

Okay, we'll have those ladies in this thread (they are prostitutes in Eastwoodland!) but I don't think we'll have them in the Survivor game. We'll let Jennifer and Madame Peaches Sophie represent Hang 'em High:)

*Sigh*.  I guess I'll take one for the team and scan through Coogan's Bluff to see if we somehow managed to miss a busty woman with red hair.
