Movie Clip Wednesday - Musical
Boxer is hosting a Movie Clip Wednesday Meme where everyone picks a clip from their favorite movies based on a weekly theme. This week's theme is Musicals - MUSICALS! I'm a straight guy, how am I suppose to do this? Am I suppose to check my genitalia at the door and pick something from West Side Story, Cabaret or Hello Dolly? Should I drink so much tequila that I could actually watch all of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and be so happy at the end that I don't have a problem with crying (don't ask me how I know this)?
After I finished breathing into a paper bag, I thought for a minute about movies with songs that may not necessarily be classified as your typical, Broadway musical. Willy Wonka, the Blues Brothers and the Rocky Horror Picture Show came to mind and I like all of those movies. But then I thought, is there a manly man's musical out there? One that was macho enough that the watching of it would never call my sexuality into question. Then it hit me - yes there is...
1969's Paint Your Wagon - truely horrible I know, but my manhood is still in tact. I can live with that.
