this is one of my favorite westerns. i watch it every chance i get. the supporting cast is great but as for angie dickinson, i think it is one of the worst acting jobs i have ever seen.
ive seen this movie soooo many times, never get tired of it. john wayne and dean martin (as always) worked great together. walter brennan steals the scenes, good ol stumpy becomes the save the day hero, with his dyneemite. ricky nelson with his eye mascara and droopy lower lip (elvis he wasnt) is creepy.a leering claude atkin great, but not enought of him. it would have been better, to see what elvis could have done with ricky nelsons part, dressed grubby like in charro. i thought the scenes with angie dickinson and john wayne were strained and annoying. story goes dean arrived on the set dressed in an outfit similar to ricky nelsons and went to howard hawks stating, this isnt what a rundown drunkin cowboy would look like . hawks told him, go find what YOU think you SHOULD look like. dean martin put his own outfit together and thats what you see on screen. now thats acting. as someone else has said. he should have got an oscar. a little de guello (throat cutting music) thank you mr.tiomkin and youve got a great saturday afternoon movie.
Wayne's Best Film
I watched "Rio Bravo" for the umpteenth time last night, and to me, this is John Wayne's best film. Superb direction by Howard Hawks. (I also enjoy Hawks' "To Have Or Have Not" & "The Big Sleep.") Dino and Ricky even sing. Fine support from Angie Dickinson and Walter Brennan. Brennan's cackle has to go down as one of the most hilarious laughs in cinematic history. Even Claude Akins is the quintessential bad guy. I agree with the earlier reviewer that Martin should have won the Oscar. His best dramatic performance. Could watch this again and again...and I will.
Rio Bravo sequel
How can I interest anyone in a script to the sequel to the western Rio Bravo? I know that western genre is passe, but I believe I have a great story here. Should I rent a huge billboard in Holywood for everyone to see? Contacting the so called "literary agents" is so useless.

Another great western reunion by Wayne & director, Hawks. Wayne, Dickinson & Brennan make a great ensemble, but Martin & Nelson steal the show. The former giving his best dramatic performance. The film is brimming with an excellent story that exciting & difficult to stop viewing. Overlong, but that's a weak complaint towards the film. I give it a 4.5/5.
Great Escapist fun with great actors a favorite movie of mine
one of the best
One of my favorite John Wayne films of all-time... And one of my favorite movies in general.
Undoubtedly the best western ever made. Dean Martin should have got an oscar for his role as Dude. The singing is fantastic & everyone seems to have gotten along while making this movie.
Dude and Feathers
- scott miller
In full synopsis it states Dude was involved with Feathers. The way I remember it, Dude was involved with a woman LIKE Feathers.
Walter Brennan is the real star in this movie - as Stumpy, he steals the scene from the other stars at every opportunity , I thought I would pass out from all the side splitting, humorous comebacks he had to say to anything wayne would tell him.
love John Wayne
- charles a cosand
Stupidest script and casting in his history!
Rio Bravo is timeless
Love this western, one of the best. Dean Martin gives an excellent performance, and his singing is the greatest. John Wayne, Ricky Nelson, great acting, I could watch this over and over again, and have.
A GREAT WESTERN
ONE OF THE BEST WESTERNS THAT HAS EVER BEEN MADE.DEAN MARTIN AND RICKY NELSON STAND OUT.IT IS A MUST SEE.
- Ruben Filimonczuk
Sensational movie by Howard Hawkes! John Wayne is thumbs up as usual....but Dean Martin really shines as his recovering alcoholic side-kick. A must see for all western fans!
Fantastic Cowboy Movie!
John Wayne at one of his best, playing a Sheriff, Dean Martin his drunken Deputy, enlist the help of a young gunslinger, Rickie Nelson. With Walter Brennan adding his humor and Angie Dickenson adding the beauty makes this a must see for a cowboy action seeking fan.....
