    About the Jew Score
    Suggestion Box
    Alan Jay Lerner

    Jew Score:



    August 31, 1918 – June 14, 1986

    "So prepare yourself for the bloody mayhem and unholy carnage of 'Paint Your Wagon'." — Bart Simpson

    "With blood, I hope!" — Homer

    So begins a rather regrettable season 9 clip show episode of "The Simpsons". Bart and Homer sadly discover that "Paint Your Wagon" is a musical that contains very little blood... and we discover that "Paint Your Wagon" was an actual, real Broadway play, which was later made into a movie.

    The not-so-classic was created by playwright and lyricist Alan Jay Lerner, with music by fellow landsman Frederick Loewe. Lerner was actually rather renowned: he won three Oscars (two for screenplays, one for song) and three Tonys. He created some of the industry's most famous musicals: "Gigi" and a little hit called "My Fair Lady".

    As for "Paint Your Wagon"? From the NY Times review of the movie: "Clint Eastwood sings like a moose."

    "Singing is the lowest form of communication." — Homer Simpson

    We don't disagree...

    Verdict: Jew.
