Almost forgot this one




Interesting thing about the movies Rio Bravo and El Dorado is they are similar in theme.

My favorites are Rio Bravo, El Dorado and Rio Lobo; which are essentially the same film.

Rio Bravo had great actors, but Eldorado had hotter women. Rio Lobo was probably the weakest of the three. It had hot women as well, but the acting wasn't as good.

Even John Wayne admitted that that all three were the same film. When Howard Hawks asked him to do Rio Lobo, he said something along the lines of: "Why not? I've already done it twice".

Lonesome Dove, best cowboy movie ever. Geronimo with Wes Studi is good; Buffalo Soldiers with Danny Glover is good. The thing about Indians in movies is that authentic costuming is prohibitively expensive. The best chance they have of fair representation is in movies with Apaches in them, because they wore a lot of cotton. Painted-on beadwork on Sioux and Cheyenne warriors makes me gag. Headbands, turkey fathers dipped in ink -- a travesty.

No one in modern times has done the Indian right, not even Dances With Wolves. Graham Greene's character wears a Crow hair style and would have been shot at a distance by any Sioux with a good enough rifle. The one thing that movie does right is represent the democratic decision making process among the Sioux. Otherwise, teh historical elements are all butchered. Post Civil War, the Sious knew damn well how many white people were coming, because they had been dealing with them since the Oregon Trail migrations onf te 1840s.

The closest you can come is something like She Wore A Yellow Ribbon, where the Indians are actual, old time warriors who got swept up in casting. They are awesomely correct, but wasted in the end when the director moves their high plains tipi village out into the Utah desert, or wherever John Ford liked to film. Monument Valley. What a wasted opportunity -- they had a chance to capture an authentic story using authentic Indian 'actors' and they blew it because they were making a white-centric flick with Indians as background scenery.

How could Red River not be picked as first? My top 5 would all be John Wayne. Any of Tom Sellecks, but the only Clint Eastwood would be Josey Wales. My most watched is Ride With The Devil. I wore out one video of it reloading for Cowboy Action.

Somedays I might say Rio Bravo. Angie Dickenson was SMOKIN hawt in that movie.

Somedays I might say Once Upon a Time in the West. it is right up there in the good story department with Shane.

Little Big Man is another excellent flick. One of Dustin Hoffman's masterpieces.
