Georgetown, Colorado is located 55 miles west of Denver along the I-70. Historically, Georgetown is a Territorial Charter Municipality that is the county seat of Clear Creek County, Colorado, United States. The former silver mining camp along Clear Creek in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains was established in 1859 during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush. But what does that have to do with Clint Eastwood? Setting aside the fact my online marketing guy CJ has met him on several occasions.
It turns out Georgetown has been the location for the filming of at least 3 movies that I know of. Phantoms, The Christmas Gift and Every Which Way But Loose, starring Clint Eastwood. Every Which Way but Loose is a 1978 American adventure comedy film, released by Warner Bros., produced by Robert Daley and directed by James Fargo. It stars Clint Eastwood in an uncharacteristic and offbeat comedy role as Philo Beddoe, a trucker and brawler roaming the American West in search of a lost love while accompanied by his brother/manager, Orville, and his pet orangutan, Clyde. In the process, Philo manages to cross a motley assortment of characters, including a pair of police officers and an entire motorcycle gang (the Black Widows), who end up pursuing him for revenge. And where does the rock climbing come in?
Clint Eastwood did his own climbing in the movie The Eiger Sanction in 1975 and coincidentally, for the rock climbers out there, there is a boulder called the Georgetown Arete with a climbing route called…wait for it…”Every Which Way But Loose”. And what does all of this have to do with real estate?
I had not looked at listings in Georgetown for awhile but it turns out there is a nice mix of historical homes, modern homes and new condos and townhouses for sale which you can see below. I know it’s a reach but the segues were amazing.
