Rio Lobo (Widescreen Edition)
The final film by the legendary director Howard Hawks, released in 1970, found him paired with longtime leading man John Wayne in a story slightly similar to their more familiar Rio Bravo and El Dorado. Set at the end of the Civil War, the story finds Wayne playing a Union army colonel who recovers some stolen gold and roots out a traitor. Though a little creaky (Hawks had been making films since 1926), Rio Lobo nevertheless has his trademark, crackling dialogue, appealing characters, and ensemble spirit among the cast. This was a worthy finish to a fantastic career by a first-rank filmmaker. John Wayne, Jennifer O'Neill. Two former Confederate soldiers team up with an ex-Union officer to settle some old scores with a bootlegger, a crooked sheriff and everyone else who crossed them. The last feature film directed by Howard Hawks. 1970/color/105 min/G/widescreen.
