El Dorado


Legendary producer-director Howard Hawks teams with two equally legendary stars, John Wayne and Robert Mitchum, in this classic Western drama. Mitchum plays to perfection an alchoholic but gutsy sheriff who relentlessly battles the dark side of the wild West, ruthless cattle barons and crooked "businessmen." The Duke gives an equally adept performance as the sheriff's old friend who knows his way around a gunfight. Filled with brawling action and humor, El Dorado delivers the goods. James Caan and Ed Asner co-star.

This is an extremely enjoyable and funny movie - hilarious in parts - with some great one liners and a couple of running jokes involving Caan. All the main characters spark well off each other...Wayne, Mitchum, Hunnicut and Caan are all on excellent form with Mitchum in particular, looking as if he was made for the part. Works for me every time....great fun!
