       I would first like to start off by saying this is my first post so Im kinda new.  I've just been happy all day really, do to the fact it was a little clint all day for me.  I woke up and caught some Hang 'em High with which I was re-enlightend on how much of a great movie this is really classic point in time of the American Western.  Fell back asleep after having a delightful breakfast and was graced when I woke up to find A Clint movie I had never seen before on the ole' T.V. I had been tryin to find Honkytonk Man everywhere around here to rent and no place had a copy.  Until today this had been the only Eastwood movie I had'nt seen yet, so being the Eastwood lover I am you all understand the feeling I was in.  I watched the movie and again was completely satisfied with the man himself.  Its unbelieveable how great  he can play virtually any role.  Though my main discovery is how great beer drinking just seems to go along with a Eastwood movie expierence.  He pays the all american Joe, I love it.  In the Honkytonk Man he once again plays his indigeous character of the bar stool buddy and this is the Eastwood character I enjoy best.  The character can relate to so many people and its just so easy to relate to a character who has attributes and habits like yourself and thats why Clint has the Charisma which no other posses'es.
    So I enjoyed my day to the fullest finally ending my quest to see every Eastwood movie around and i can finally say that there is no other actor who has even come close to having as much skill as the legendary "Man With No Name" and I dont know if anyone else will come much closer.

Honkytonk Man was one of the biggest surprises of Clints career for me .
I had been dreading it when I first read about the plot in Photoplay ( sadly defunct magazine )
Then I saw it at my local cinema........... great ! a real unsung masterpiece .

I was searching for general threads about Honkytonk Man. Surely this isn't the only one!

A friend of mine posted today about this being the anniversary (December 8) of Marty Robbins's death in 1982, and that reminded me that he was in Honkytonk Man and sings in it as well. And then it made me really want to watch the movie again sometime soon.

This movie is amongst my favorite Eastwood movies. O0

Mine too, I was lucky enough yo see it in the cinema here in a London (it got a very limited release due to its poor showing Stateside I guess)
I loved it... There were about  10 of us in the cinema and all broke out into spontaneous applause at the films end.
Something I'd never experienced before..
To this day it remains one of my favourite films of Mr a Eastwood's ..
