OK. I know I dont post often in the news section, and Im sorry if this post isnt really great "news" but I was checking on TV now to see when that A&E special was airing and I came across this:

Mister Ed
Clint Eastwood Meets Mister Ed
30 minutes-

starring
Alan Young, Connie Hines, Voice of Allan Lane

A party line on the phone gives Ed the opportunity to court Clint Eastwood's horse.

Fri  Sep 26  03:00A   LAND- TVLand
Fri  Sep 26  05:00P   LAND- TVLand


Anyone ever seen this? ;D
I was just wondering if we see Clint in the episode

This episode dates from 1962, during the period when Eastwood was fairly well-known as one of the stars of Rawhide, but two years before he made the first of the Leone pictures that would propel him to international fame. This was the first outside assignment that CBS permitted its Rawhide costar to accept.

Arthur Lubin, an early Eastwood mentor from his Universal days, devised and directed the series about a talking horse (the title character), while Sonia Chernus, an old friend of Eastwood's and his future story editor at Malpaso, cowrote the episode, in which Eastwood does, indeed, play a featured role as what Richard Schickel calls "a bachelor version of himself": an aspiring TV actor trying to make a name for himself, newly moved into the suburb where the series' characters reside, with his horse, which is "a larger and more glamorous creature" than the eponymous Mr. Ed, resulting in jealousy and allegedly comical complications.

See Richard Schickel, Clint Eastwood (1996), p. 124-125.

Thanks, Misty, for the times when this episode will be airing. I knew Eastwood was on Mister Ed, and I've been enjoying Mister Ed whenever I've been able to catch it on TV Land, and I was wondering when they'd show this episode.

Any Aussie fans with access to Optus or Foxtel cable,set the VCR for Tuesday morning at 5:30am on the Fox Classics channel as the episode featuring Clint is advertised to air.

I've never seen this,so it should be fun. :D

I finally watched this episode last night. It was very funny when Ed was trying to cause some problems for Clint. ;D

I just watched this episode of Mr. Ed with Clint Eastwood guest-starring. I loved it--He is great in it and the whole thing is just so much corny fun. I really enjoyed it!
