I remembered seeing it years ago when i was a lot younger and decided at £3.99 i would get a copy for my western collection.
Starring two of my favourite actors Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin who both have roles that you don't expect, usually they are Soldiers or Gunfighters not Gold Miners!
This being a musical/comedy western you even see them singing and dancing and joking around. The scenary is stunning as in most westerns and it was made back in 1969 by Joshua Logan, it's comical and has a witty storyline which all makes for a very entertaining film.
Nice one Play! More Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin dvd bargains!!

This is one of my favourite films, I saw it on holiday when it was first released and thought it was outstandingly good fun. Everybody in the film appears to be having a whale of a good time, there are good songs (which I still sing to myself) and the climas is superb. A great film.

"Paint your wagon" is a big, sprawling mess of a movie. It is intended as a big, rousing western musical but is so hellishly long that it barely has a chance of succeeding.

This story of gold prospectors in "No Name City", California, during the days of the old west, veers wildly in quality from start to finish. Some scenes are sweet and quite funny. On the other hand, long stretches of the film are just noisy and tedious. At best, the film is an amiable oddity in the filmographies of both Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood. Once you get past the shock of a singing Clint playing a gentle soul who likes talking to trees, you can have a good time, provided you don't pay too much attention.

Watching a lot of extras whooping, hollering and waving their hats around may not be to everyone's taste, but the musical numbers are at best quite infectious. Lee Marvin distractedly rumbling his way through "Wanderin' star" provides one of the oddest moments. The best scene is the finale in which "No Name City" collapses into the ground, an expensive but impressive sequence.

Still, if one were to be stuck in a western landscape, hanging out with the crazy folks of No Name City would be preferable to being stuck in a lot of other western towns.

The picture and sound quality are excellent throughout, the bright colours coming over very well.
