Description

Pardner and Rumson are budding gold prospectors who become bosom buddies and the ultimate partners in crime. Their friendship is sealed when Rumson heroically saves Pardner from a stagecoach crash.

The duo team up in the mining village of 'No Name City' to embark on some gold prospecting. Their business antics are awash with dodgy deals; they conspire to build a tunnel into a saloon to steal all the gold-dust that's fallen through the floorboards, kidnap six prostitutes and turn the mining camp into a boom town. All this at the same time as sharing a wife!

Synopsis
Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin break out of their traditional screen personas in this offbeat western musical comedy with a memorable Lerner and Loewe score. Pardner (Eastwood) and Ben Rumson (Marvin) are two buddies who share everything, including their wife Elizabeth (Jean Seberg), whom they bought at an auction. Together, between bouts of drinking and gambling, the two men are able to transform such activities as hijacking a stage and kidnapping prostitutes into steps toward transforming their mining camp into a boomtown. Directed by Josh Logan (PICNIC, SOUTH PACIFIC). Academy Award Nominations: Best Score of a Musical Picture.
