Movie Series - Every Which Way But Loose

Every Which Way But Loose is a 1978 American film, released by Warner Brothers, produced by Robert Daley and directed by James Fargo. It stars Clint Eastwood in an uncharacteristic and offbeat comedy role, as Philo Beddoe, a trucker and brawler roaming the American West in search of a lost love while accompanied by his friend/manager Orville and his pet orangutan, Clyde. In the process Philo manages to cross a motley assortment of characters, including a pair of police officers and an entire motorcycle gang (the "Black Widows"), who end up pursuing him for revenge. Eastwood's appearance in the film, after his string of spaghetti western and Dirty Harry roles, somewhat startled the film industry and he was reportedly advised against making it. Panned by critics, the film went on to become an enormous success and became, along with its 1980 sequel Any Which Way You Can, two of the highest grossing Eastwood films.

3 I was 13 when this movie came out. I went to see it purely to watch that orangutan kick peoples asses. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on February 21, 2017, 4:24 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 A lot of people wanted to watch this at the time. It wasn't like everyone had cable. Most people still had to go out to movies, and Clint Eastwood was a popular ticket fresh off his Dirty Harry and Josey Wales successes. This was slightly more light hearted. I believe the title song was a hit single as well. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 5:12 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Any Which Way You Can was saved from boning by that epic fight scene between Clint and William Smith. Best damn bare-knuckle fight scene in movie history, baby! (Smith is one of THE coolest dudes to ever take up acting.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 6:27 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Although I'm sure the execs were leery at giving something like Every Which Way But Loose a shot, those that did were glad they did. Every Which Way But Loose and Any Which Way You Can are two of my favorite Clint Eastwood films because of how funny they are. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on November 7, 2010, 8:13 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I can just see the pitch to movie execs on this one "And Clint Eastwood will travel around the country kicking ass with a monkey! Who wouldn't want to watch that?" -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on November 6, 2010, 10:04 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
