A rollicking western!

"Next time you shoot somebody, don't go near 'em till you're... sure they're dead!"

The fruitful partnership of John "The Duke" Wayne and Howard Hawks (that spanned over a number of decades) produced several utterly fabulous additions to the Western genre. Red River marked their first collaboration, with the masterpiece of Rio Bravo soon following. El Dorado isn't as good as the fil... read more

El Dorado

Basically a remake of Rio Bravo with only two of the same players involved – director Howard Hawks and star John Wayne – and immensely inferior in just about every aspect, I think only the biggest and strictest of fans of Wayne will find much to enjoy about this. Maybe it’s that this exact same story isn’t as fresh or invigorating the second time around, or maybe it’s the characters don... read more

"28.4. (Teatteri/35 mm) Melkeinpä väitän parhaimpiin kuuluvaksi näkemäkseni hawksilaiseksi. Paljolti tämä on hyvin kirjoitettujen hahmojen ja simppeliydessään mukaansatempaavan tarinan ansiota. Wayne on separi, Robert Mitchum vetää viskiä ja linkkaa kainalosauvoilla ja Michele Careylla on ajankuvaan istuva meikki kera hiusvärin. Huumori toimii kuin myös baarien pianopimputukset. Pidin kaiketi myös siitä, ettei tässä ollut sitä pirun paatoksellisuutta."

"First viewing - Jan. 29th After Paddington I found I was running a fever, so I had the ex pick up the kiddo for the night & settled onto the couch until I was ready for sleep. Since I had plenty of time I decided I could watch a longer film & chose El Dorado. The acting is excellent throughout, though I'd expect no less from Wayne & Mitchum & James Caan. To be fair John Wayne didn't have a lot of range as an actor, but he plays the cowboy roles well & brings style & humor to his performances. A"
