It wound up being a one six-pack movie (with 1.5 oz. shots).
I was going to ask you how many you had. You bought two six packs, right?

And Satu, that's just a couple hours from now for you! I know, I don't need to tell you that... haha

This was actually my first official movie night! In the old days, I used to be around some while you were watching, and would even add some comments sometimes. :D

Now tomorrow I have a classroom observation with my dean sitting in my classroom. Maybe I should try to revise my class plan to work some Paint Your Wagon music into it?! :D :D ;D

Don't do it! You might fail your inspection! ;)

This was so much fun. Next time, it will be Sudden Impact and we'd better have more than four.  But if I had only four to choose, I'd choose the four of you.

Thanks everyone for being here. It was great.  :)

And I know you're all impressed with my typing skills (okay, don't laugh). I've managed to self-correct. :)

We need more drinking cues to get me past the self-correcting phase.

Or maybe they'll hire me full time! ;) ;D

Sudden Impact will be a fun one to do. And the "four of you," including yourself, right? :D

And roll credits. And then a little more singing to follow after it goes black. ;D

Yeah, what was with reprising all of those terrible songs when there wasn't even anything to look at to distract us from their awfulness? :o ;D

I enjoyed Paint Your Wagon, and I don't even think the singing was that bad. But the music is terrible. But then ... I hate most musicals. Just when the story gets interesting, someone sings an awful song and makes you wait around until it's over to start up the story again.

I love opera, but at least that is great music. And in the best operas, the singing carries the story, rather than interrupting it.

I agree! The story was good enough, and the acting was great by Clint, Lee and Jean. Such a shame they had to put all those songs in!

Is this the only time an Eastwood character ever had a brother?

I think it is! I remember thinking Orville might have been in the Which Way movies, but apparently they just both called Ruth Gordon "Ma".

Yes, I think we settled a long time ago that "Ma" wasn't Philo's mother.

That Horace Taber is a rather annoying fella.

It was hard to keep up with all the posts and watch the movie too ... I just noticed this.

It's Horace Tabor, and he is, I think, the only historical character (historically named, anyway) in Paint Your Wagon:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horace_Tabor

However, he made (and lost) his fortune in Colorado, not California, and in silver, not gold. He did cause a scandal by falling in love with a woman named Elizabeth, though it was because he was married, not her (she was divorced).

Did you recognize the actor who played him, William O'Connell? He was in four other Eastwood movies, including High Plains Drifter, in the role of the nervous barber:

So, this movie was rated "R", and they said "Horny", maybe the first time that word was said in a musical?   ;D

On my DVD, it says "PG-13." ???

Oops, it was "M", I read it in the Roger Ebert review that we discussed in the other thread. In my mind, that translated to "R", but a little research shows that it was more a PG rating before the PG rating was introduced.

Wait, did Red Stovall have a brother, or was it a sister? It's been a loooong time since I've seen it.

And that ended up being cancelled for today! And here I am leading my classes in "Gold Fever" without my boss being able to watch! :D
