A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
San Francisco Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) must foil a terrorist organization made up of disgruntled Vietnam veterans. But this time, he's teamed with female partner Inspector Kate Moore (Tyne Daly), with whom he's not too excited to be working.
Philo Beddoe (Clint Eastwood) is an easy-going trucker and a great fist-fighter. With two friends, Orville (Geoffrey Lewis), who promotes prize-fights for him, and Clyde (Manis the Orangutan), the orangutan he won on a bet, he roams the San Fernando Valley in search of cold beer, country music, and the occasional punch-up. But he is floored by dainty little country and western singer, Lynn Halsey-Taylor (Sondra Locke), who gives him the slip when she realizes he's getting too serious. Phil, Clyde, and Orville set off in pursuit, pestered by bikers.Written by

Two bass players playing with Sandra Locke's country band in bar. One standing up front and one sitting down by drummer. Unusual unless you're Spinal Tap. See more »
[Philo is sanding off a motorcycle when Ma taps him with her cane]
Cut it out, Clyde.
[Ma hits him with the cane; Philo notices it's Ma]
Ma, what'd do that for?
I've been trying to get your attention for five minutes. Did you see Orville?
Yeah, I've seen him.
Well, Orville tell ya what?
Yeah, I'm sorry, Ma, about you missing your driver's test again.
Oh, that ain't the "What" what I mean.
You mean Clyde? Yeah, well, I'm sorry about that too, Ma. He won't do it again, I promise you.

EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE (1978) *** Clint Eastwood, Sondra Locke,RuthGordon, Geoffrey Lewis, Beverly D' Angelo. Rollickingly funny comedy with Clint as tough-guy Philo Beddoe and his best friend, Clyde the scene- stealing orangutan and Gordon stealing scenes from both as Philo's feisty ma. Plot is simple: Philo has fallen in love with country/western songstress Locke and entails some adventures in his pursuit. Lewis lends some able, amiable support as Philo's best bud and fellow beer drinking good ol' boy. Fine jukebox offering of C&W and filmed on location in sunny Bakersfield, California.
Redneck humor was never this pugnacious!
