Trailers From Hell Travels to ‘El Dorado’ with John Wayne

Trailers From Hell Travels to 'El Dorado' with John Wayne

The second entry in Howard Hawks’ "Rio Bravo" trilogy is a virtual remake, ostensibly more playful and less a riposte to "High Noon" than the (better, let’s face it) original. Still a fun ride with Wayne and Mitchum having an obviously swell time in their only screen pairing, despite the fact that Wayne had Mitchum fired off of "Blood Alley" a decade earlier. Filming began in late 1965 but the film wasn’t released until 1967. On the heels of the flops "Man’s Favorite Sport?" and "Red Line 7000," it was the hit Hawks needed to stay in the game.
