El Dorado

126 minutes 2013

This late masterpiece (1966) by Howard Hawks is a virtual remake of Rio Bravo, just as Rio Bravo was a virtual remake of To Have and Have Not—only Hawks could make three great, and very different, films from one screenplay. John Wayne and Robert Mitchum are two aging gunfighters, struggling to maintain the Hawksian edge of professionalism in the face of their dwindling powers. It's a very funny, very moving work, graced by the cinema's cleanest, most classical style. With James Caan.
