There's a story when Burt and Clint were starting out in films (back in the 50's), on one movie they were messing around. The producer not only fired them, but said they'd never make it in Hollywood since Burt can't act worth a damn and Clint's Adam's apple was too big. As they were walking out Burt joked to Clint:
"I suppose I can always take acting lessons but I don't know what you'll do about your Adams apple"

Rollin, rollin, rollin. Keep movin, movin, movin,
Though they’re disapprovin, keep them doggies movin Rawhide!
Don’t try to understand ’em, just rope and throw and grab ’em, soon we’ll be living high and wide.
Boy my heart’s calculatin. My true love will be waitin, be waitin at the end of my ride.
Move ’em on, head ’em up, head ’em up, move ’em out,
Move ’em on, head ’em out Rawhide!
Set ’em out, ride ’em in ride ’em in, let ’em out, cut ’em out, ride ’em in Rawhide.

Burt was always in comedies and I think he needed others to really play-off against. I think his best movie was Smokie and the Bandit, which still makes me laugh.
