Two Crooners and ‘ole Dusty Britches… Rio Bravo (1959)

Rio BravoIf you were to think ‘great western film’, you’d start with Wayne, probably add Ward Bond and maybe even Brennan… but Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson?

Well, a great western you get.

Nothing too dramatic, nothing too over the top, just a really well paced and flowing film that keeps you moving start to finish. Sure, Martin also has some meaty acting credits… and Nelson was doing well at the time, but they lend a fine hand to this dusty little Hawks film.

Excellent popcorn film.
