SCREENING

El Dorado

Ongoing

Dir. Howard Hawks. 1966, 126 mins. 35mm. With John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, James Cann, Charlene Holt. Hawks’s elegiac and comical follow-up to Rio Bravo pushes both the humor and the violence of the first film to extremes. Cole Thornton (Wayne), a gunfighter for hire, joins forces with an old friend, Sheriff J.P. Hara, (Mitchum), to help a rancher and his family fight a rival rancher that is trying to steal their water. Caan provides comic relief as Mississippi, an inept gunman armed with a diabolical shotgun.
