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.
