On one side is an army of gunmen dead-set on springing a murderous sidekick from jail. On the other is Sherriff John T. Chance and his two deputies: one a drunk, the other a cripple. Place your bets!
John Wayne is Chance in 'Rio Bravo', a lean Western classic packing solid heroics around a strong emotional core. He's joined by Dean Martin as the deputy coming off a two-year drunk, Walter Brennan as the old coot whose fiery spirit outmatches his hobbled stride, Ricky Nelson as a youngster out to prove himself by joining the lawmen and Angie Dickinson as a woman with a past who hopes to rope Chance.
Director Howard Hawkes already lifted the Western to new heights with 'Red River'. With 'Rio Bravo', Hawkes does it again, capturing the straight-from-the-barrel Old West many grew up with - a legendary West that fits all the tall talents of Wayne and Hawkes like a Colt 44 fits a weathered holster.
