OTD December 20 - Every Which Way But Loose
13 / 36
Warner Bros. Pictures

1978: The adventure comedy film "Every Which Way but Loose," starring Clint Eastwood and Sondra Locke, opens in theaters. The movie, in which Eastwood plays Philo Beddoe, a trucker and brawler roaming the West in search of a lost love while accompanied by his friend/manager Orville and his pet orangutan Clyde, was panned by critics but proved a huge hit at the box office. The movie earned more than $104 million to become Eastwood's most commercially successful film at the time and spawned a sequel, 1980's "Any Which Way You Can."
