Every Which Way But Loose (20-Dec-1978)

Director: James Fargo

Writer: Jeremy Joe Kronsberg

Producer: Robert Daley

Keywords: Action/Comedy, Monkeys, Truckers, Road Trip

Philo Beddoe, trucker and overall good ole boy from San Fernando, fall in love with country western singer Lynn Halsey-Taylor; he and his orangutan Clyde (won in a bet) take off cross-country in pursuit, while others pursue them. Plot is not particularly important in this redneck comedy. Eastwood's role was clearly intended originally for Burt Reynolds. Followed by a sequel, Any Which Way You Can (1980).
