Movie Info

Heartless tycoon Bart Jason (Edward Asner) hires a group of thugs to force the MacDonald family out of El Dorado so he can claim their land. J.P. Harrah, the town's sheriff, is too deep in the throes of alcoholism to help the family. When Harrah's friend, noble elder gunfighter Cole Thorton (John Wayne), learns of the predicament, he travels to El Dorado with his upstart friend, Mississippi (James Caan), to help Harrah clean up in time for a shootout against Jason's men.

Audience Reviews for El Dorado

  • Aug 26, 2014
    Hawks re-teams with John Wayne in this obvious remake of Rio Bravo (although he always denied that), which despite lacking in originality and being too familiar for its own good, boasts a stunning cinematography, elegant dialogue and Robert Mitchum virtually stealing the scene.

    It isn't John Wayne's best movie, but certainly one of his most entertaining. Howard Hawks directed this? Well, all the better.

    Who cares if El Dorado has a similar to Rio Bravo, it's a great movie that is one of the best American Westerns. The story has such a beautiful flow and pace, with characters that you are glued to from the beginning. That's what Howard Hawks does best, create movies that people can enjoy and also respect. With a dynamite cast like The Duke, Robert Mitchum and James Caan, how can you lose? While this might be a lot more subtle, it shows you everything good about the genre and has absolutely zero flaws. You can appreciate it from every level, it's not for any one type of audience.
