EI Dorado is just what its title and cast indicate that it is -- a western, and not a bad one at that. Full Review

A tough, laconic and amusing Western that ambles across the screen as easily as the two veteran stars. Full Review

Vivid story telling and a late take on the Western genre as a whole. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Howard Hawks is too good a director to depend upon stereotyped violence to keep the interest of the audience, and his well-made scenes between Wayne, Mitchum, Arthur Hunicutt and James Cann never lag for a moment. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- A nice serving of entertaining comfort cinema for dedicated fans of classic era filmmaking. Full Review

Product Description:

In the town of El Dorado, wealthy landowner Bart Jason (Ed Asner) is embroiled in a struggle with the MacDonald family, who own a large amount of land just outside town lines. Jason hires gunman Cole Thornton (John Wayne) to scare the MacDonalds in hope that they'll back down. Cole is pleased to discover that his old friend J.B. (Robert Mitchum) is now the sheriff of the town. The sheriff warns Cole that involvement with the crooked Jason will get him arrested. Further circumstances entwine the hired gun with the MacDonald family, and he sets out to destroy Jason. Hawks' unheralded western, with a fine script by Leigh Brackett (THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK), features plot similarities to his earlier classic RIO BRAVO.
