While working as a barroom fighter at the Palomino Club,
hard-living truck driver Philo Beddoe falls for the
nightclub's singer. When she leaves the club for greener
pastures in Colorado, Beddoe follows with his pet
orangutan Clyde in tow and his enemies, a motorcycle gang
and an L.A. cop, close behind.
This unusual combination of bare knuckle fighting and
lighthearted romp was also a comedic change of pace for
its rugged star Clint Eastwood. Eastwood plays trucker
Philo Beddoe, a revered brawler who lives in a shack with
his best pal's feisty, elderly mother (Ruth Gordon) and an
orangutan, Clyde, who sips beer and thumbs his nose at
authority. Philo is preparing for a bout against the
wishes of his mother and his new love interest (Sandra
Locke). If clashing with the women in his life weren't
enough, he has to deal with his cocky opponent, gamblers,
and a chopper gang who constantly harass him.
Fortunately, he does have Clyde backing him up as well as
his trusty companion Orville Boggs (regular Eastwood
collaborator Geoffrey Lewis).
This bizarre hick comedy was a surprise hit and spawned a
sequel featuring many in the original cast. The country
soundtrack combines the talents of Steve Dorff and Snuff
Garrett and boasts a hit single by Eddie Rabbit!!
