Remember the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' clip show episode "All Singing, All Dancing" where Bart and Homer rent a Creator/ClintEastwood and Creator/LeeMarvin movie titled '''''Paint Your Wagon''''' and expect it to be a bloody shoot-em-up Western (much like ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'' or ''Film/AFistfulOfDollars''), only to discover it's a [[TheMusical musical film]]?

This flick had all the aspirations of a major blockbuster, but there were two problems. Firstly, Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin can't sing. Secondly, by the time it was released big budget musicals were on their way out. While it premiered two months before the mega-flop ''Hello, Dolly!'' soured Hollywood on movie musicals for years, it was certainly one of the nails in the genre's coffin. Sure enough, it bombed at the box office.

This somewhat obscure 1969 movie musical was based on a Broadway musical by Lerner and Loewe (the authors of ''Theatre/{{Brigadoon}}'' and later ''MyFairLady''), with which it shares a number of characters and songs but not much plot. It was the last film to be directed by Joshua Logan, and was adapted for the screen by Paddy Chayefsky (''Film/{{Marty}}'', ''Film/{{Network}}'').

The story takes place during the California Gold Rush. When a wagon crashes into a ravine, grizzled {{prospector}} Ben Rumson (Marvin) rescues the surviving occupant (Eastwood). The two form a partnership, and Ben dubs the survivor "Pardner". By the riverside where the wagon crashed, gold is discovered, and a boom town called "No Name City" promptly crops up.

With the abduction of the prostitutes successful, a brothel is established. Men come from miles around for a lay, and No Name City grows into a thriving town. Presently, a preacher named Parson arrives and decries all the gambling and hooking, claiming that God will make the earth swallow the town. As it happens, some of the townsfolk dig tunnels beneath the town to collect gold dust that falls through the floorboards of the buildings above. It looks like Parson might turn out to be correct...
