Rio Bravo (1959)-Hawks creates comradery!

Tonight 8/18/16 on TCM – The Howard Hawks entertaining Rio Bravo (1959) about a group of underdog Westerners led by Sheriff John Wayne who team up to stand up again the local bad guys-Exceptional performances here by the great Ward Bond as Wayne’s friend; Dean Martin as Dude, the talented deputy recovering from alcoholism; Ricky Nelson as Colorado, the smart kid; Screen great Walter Brennan as the grumpy old man Stumpy, and Angie Dickerson as Feathers, the new to the town beautiful young widow. Great artistry in filmmaking by Hawks to blend these diverse characters into a group that has a special comradery and even treat us to a laugh or a song along the way!
