I enjoyed watching Calamity Jane recently and it sparked an interest in taking in more old movies.
My wife could watch films every day – she pretty much does anyway – but for me, occasional is enough.
This time round, as it was on BBC iPlayer, we sat down to watch Paint Your Wagon.
As you can see from the video, we got there in the end.
A 1969 release, starring Lee Marvin, Clint Eastwood and Jean Seberg, it was one of the last great musicals, as tastes changed heading into the seventies.
However, there have been lots since that have been really popular.
As far as the musical in general is concerned, definitely a case of down but not out.
