Although Every Which Way But Loose was only the second Eastwood film James Fargo directed (The Enforcer was the first), Fargo had already worked as Assistant Director on several Eastwood films: Joe Kidd, High Plains Drifter, The Eiger Sanction and The Outlaw Josey Wales. Every Which Way But Loose would be Fargo's final film for Malpaso, with Eastwood handing over the directing of the sequel, Any Which Way You Can, to long-time Malpaso stuntman Buddy Van Horn in his directing debut.
