Editors Note
Note Howard Hawks's final film once again teams him with John Wayne, with a script by Leigh Brackett (who also wrote his EL DORADO and RIO BRAVO). The time is just after the end of the Civil War. Wayne is Union Colonel Cord McNally, who is teamed with two Confederate soldiers he captured during the war in order to take down a thieving bootlegger. Their travels take them to a small town being held in terror by an evil Sheriff. McNally and his crew decide to help the townspeople with their own brand of justice. With a considerable amount of humor and Hawks's reliable formula in which a motley band of men unite for a common cause, RIO LOBO is a fitting conclusion to both his western trilogy and a distinguished career.
Plot Summary
Summary The Civil War has ended, and a Union officer has a score to settle with two Confederates, who keep stealing his cargos of gold. He finally catches them, but the duo won't snitch on who informs them about the valuable shipments. Could it be someone within the colonel's camp?
USA Today "Director Howard Hawks' swan song was RIO LOBO, which teamed him for the fifth and final time with John Wayne..." 05/09/2003 p.16D
Total Film "[I]t has a pleasing, insouciant attitude to pace, preferring laid-back humour and relaxed rhythms." 02/01/2004 p.118
