In a Texas border town Sheriff Chance (John Wayne) battles to uphold the law aided by his drunken deputy Dude (Dean Martin), his old friend Stumpy (Walter Brennan), a gun toting kid (Ricky Nelson), and Feathers (Angie Dickinson), the woman Chance bashfully falls in love with. Considered one of Wayne's best performances and one of Director Howard Hawks' finest films, Rio Bravo is full of crackling dialogue, humour and action. Perfectly cast, filmed in gloriously epic technicolour and with a magnificent score by Dmitri Tiomkin Rio Bravo is one of Hollywood's greatest Westerns.


John Ford's landmark Western revolves around an assorted group of colourful passengers aboard the Overland stagecoach bound for Lordsburg, New Mexico, in the 1880s. An alcoholic philosophizer (Thomas Mitchell), a lady of ill repute (Claire Trevor) and a timid liquor salesman (Donald Meek) are among the motley crew of travellers who must contend with an escaped outlaw, the Ringo Kid (John Wayne), and the ever-present threat of an Apache attack as they make their way across the Wild West.
