Product Description

Product Description

One deputy (Dean Martin) is a drunk, one (Walter Brennan) is a cripple and another (Ricky Nelson) is an eager, tinhorn kid. But Sheriff John Wayne knows he can count on 'em when the bullets fly. A landmark salute to heroism, directed by Howard Hawks.

Amazon.ca

When it comes down to naming the best Western of all time, the list usually narrows to three completely different pictures: John Ford's The Searchers, Howard Hawks's Red River, and Hawks's Rio Bravo. About the only thing they all have in common is that they all star John Wayne. But while The Searchers is an epic quest for revenge and Red River is a sweeping cattle-drive drama ("Take 'em to Missouri! Yeeee-hah!"), Rio Bravo is on a much more modest scale. Basically, it comes down to Sheriff John T. Chance (Wayne), his sobering-up alcoholic friend Dude (Dean Martin), the hotshot new kid Colorado (Ricky Nelson), and deputy-sidekick Stumpy (Walter Brennan), sittin' around in the town jail, drinkin' black cofee, shootin' the breeze, and occasionally, singin' a song. Hawks--who, like his pal Ernest Hemingway, lived by the code of "grace under pressure"--said he made Rio Bravo as a rebuke to High Noon, in which sheriff Gary Cooper begged for townspeople to help him. So, Hawks made Wayne's Sheriff Chance a consummate professional--he may be getting old and fat, but he knows how to do his job, and he doesn't want amateurs getting mixed up in his business; they could get hurt. This most entertaining of movies also achieved some notoriety in the '90s when Quentin Tarantino (director of Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, and Jackie Brown) revealed that he uses it as a litmus test for prospective girlfriends. Oh, and if the configuration of characters sounds familiar, it should: Hawks remade Rio Bravo two more times--as El Dorado in 1967, with Wayne, Robert Mitchum, and James Caan; and as Rio Lobo in 1970, with Wayne, Jack Elam, and Christopher Mitchum. --Jim Emerson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

i really like this Western.it stars John Wayne,Ricky Nelson,Dean martin
and Angie Dickinson,to name a few.the acting is superb in this
movie.but what i really like is the dialogue and the unique mix of
characters.the story is also good.it's straightforward and
simple.Unlike The Searchers,another John Wayne movie.Rio bravo is not a
sweeping,grand epic.it takes place in basically one town.nevertheless,i
found it engaging and compelling.this edition contains a raft of
extras,including two documentaries and a short featurette.Like the
Ultimate edition of The Searchers,here is also a reproduction of the
1959 Dell comic book,a reproduction of the original press book from
1959,and 8 full colour lobby cards.as for the movie itself,i think it's
pretty well done,and deserves a 3.5/5.the collection is definitely worth
having,and i give that a 4/5

For those of you who wants to own this title on Blu-ray at a reasonnable price, get the german import (import allemand wich is the release for all Europe))avalaible from some sellers at this moment. I bought it and I can confirm it plays in north american region A player(it's an ABC blu-ray). Actually I'm quite sure it's the same master as the north american release sold at high prices in Canada (probably OOP). In fact the disc menu is all english. The only drawback I see is the artwork wich is in german on the backside and the classification symbol that takes too much place on the front. Hope this can help you.

The quality of the transfer is much better than the regular DVD, in particular the colour benefits from 1080. There are a couple of scenes which are still a bit grainy, but that may be from the original film quality. It is well worth the price to upgrade to the 1080 version.

RIO BRAVO [1959] [Blu-ray] [US Import] Arguably Howard Hawks’ Greatest Film! Beautifully Acted, Wonderfully Observed and Scripted with Enormous Wit and Generosity!

On one side is an army of gunmen dead-set on springing a murderous cohort from jail. On the other are Sheriff John T. Chance [John Wayne] and two deputies: a recovering drunkard and a crippled codger. Also in their ragtag ranks are a trigger-happy youth and a woman with a past and her eye on Sheriff John T. Chance. Director Howard Hawks lifted the Western to new heights with ‘Red River.’ Capturing the legendary West with a stellar cast in peak form, he does it again here.

It seems like I meet a lot of people who don't like John Wayne, and just about as many who don't care for Westerns.
Well, whether you love John Wayne and Westerns, or are lukewarm on both counts, this movie might appeal to you anyway.
A lot of it has to do with Howard Hawks' direction. This classic came from the same guy who gave us "Bringing Up Baby," "The Big Sleep," and "His Girl Friday."
That means quick, witty dialogue, fun characters, and an overall stylishness in the proceedings (the cinematography is alarmingly crisp and colorful).
A cowboy, a crooner and a rockin' teen idol-- these three, Wayne, Dean Martin (in one of his earliest roles after leaving Jerry Lewis), and Ricky Nelson, come together in a way that feels symbolic. To fight off the imminent danger-- and in this film one senses it is hopelessly imminent-- the good guys need to stick close. Dean Martin plays the underdog, a drunk, with just the right touch-- humorous like so many Vegas shows, but with a bit of sadness too. Ricky Nelson looks a little uncomfortable in the saddle, and his lines are a little shaky, but the contrast of his usual persona with this fast-shooting kid makes him fun to watch.
Angie Dickinson is more beautiful than ever in this film and has very good chemistry with John Wayne.
Of course, what really adds the frosting to the cake is the incomparable Walter Brennan, just about the grumpiest old buzzard you'll ever lay eyes on. The spontaneity of Hawks' direction makes him even funnier, and I think Brennan alone moves "Rio Bravo" a notch higher than the successful remake-of-sorts "El Dorado.
