coogan's bluff

Being a Clint Eastwood fan (as all men should be) I snapped up a copy of Coogan's Bluff when I saw it for sale recently - £3 well spent. I had forgotten just how odd the film is. It plays as a sort of half way point between Clint's cowboy persona that had proceeded the film and made him famous and his Dirty Harry role which would follow. It also has a good bit of 60s flavour, at times it's like an episode of The Monkees but with violence and sex. Ok, it's dated but being 40 odd years old, it should have. It's well worth a watch.

It is also worth mentioning that it is the brownest film I have ever seen.
