I wonder if Clyde the Orangutan does? Well, while we wonder about that we will check this one out:
I saw this one with my parents at the theater - and loved it. So did audiences across the country - it was a huge hit for Clint - a real change of pace flick his advisers had tried to steer him away from. (It was rumored to have been concocted with Burt Reynolds in mind - which seems right.) Clint - wearing the great character name Philo Beddoe, travels around Southern California bare knuckle fighting for a living, and hanging with his buddy Clyde - an orangutan who is almost as saucy as Clint's Ma - the amazing Ruth Gordon in a career third act that went on for several years. You also get Geoffrey Lewis as Philo's human pal - and Geoff's girlfriend is the always adorable Beverly D'Angelo. Sondra Locke - then Clint's main squeeze - plays the female lead - and while I'm glad they got to spend the time together - she's never been one of my favorites, but she's okay here.
All in all, a very fun flick from '78, and it resides in the video vault on a brand spanking new used Blu-Ray which I can fire up anytime - even tonight - you know, if you came over and all.
