The Woman Has The Best Part: Two Mules For Sister Sara

The 1970 film “Two Mules For Sister Sara” starring Shirley MacLaine and Clint Eastwood is not considered a great Western in Eastwood’s long career, but it is the most unique, and in some ways, the most enjoyable to watch. Directed by Don Siegel, with a fun score by Ennio Morricone, MacLaine and Eastwood have great chemistry and play off each other wonderfully. The trailer makes it seem like an action packed Western, which it is, but it also has a playful and sardonic sense of humor. As MacLaine and Eastwood were both well aware of, the role of Sara was the best part in the movie.

John Landis Interview

Here is a great, freewheeling 2013 interview with Director John Landis and Adam Savage. Landis is a great storyteller and he has many great stories to tell including working on Kelly’s Heroes in Yugoslavia to Once Upon A Time In The West in Spain. Stanley Kubrick comes up quite a bit also. Very entertaining.
