Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970) Directed by Don Siegel
Shirley MacLaine as Sara and Clint Eastwood as Hogan

Sara: Do you have a shovel?
Hogan: Yeah. It’s on my pack horse over the hill.
Sara: Then would you get it and cover them please? For the sake of my soul if not your own.
Hogan: Sister, I don’t mind shootin’ ’em for ya, but I’ll be damned if I’m gonna sweat over ’em for ya.
Sara: You’re as stubborn as my mule, you know?
Hogan: Worse.

  1. I had an aversion to this movie until just a few years ago – and it’s actually enjoyable. As I recall, Elizabeth Taylor was first offered the role that MacLaine ended up getting.

  2. Sad to say, I’ve never seen this film, though the Morricone score is in itself an impossible-to-refuse temptation. But the actors too of course.

  3. The taboo of sexuality involving a nun was pretty ripe for its time.
