First time I ever saw him was when I was six or seven years old in “Paint Your Wagon”, an old musical about the California Gold Rush days.
As far as I know, it’s the only musical he was ever in, and the only one where he sang. Worth watching just for that.
There's a reason for that. :-))
Seriously, Paint Your Wagon is not a great movie musical, but it is worth watching, not just for seeing Eastwood in one, but also for its off the wall plot and humor.
I fell asleep after Lee Marvin’s song. My parents took us kids to see it at the drive-in. I may have been seven or so.
Yeah, I first saw it at a drive-in. Loved it.
Me, too. What a great movie. Loved it when the whole town collapsed.

They released several records on vinyl of his “singing”. It was explained that the movie company wanted to keep their actors in the public eye.
Hear him sing again, at a later date:
