We had a great day today. Grilled burgers over hot coals and watched a couple of John Wayne movies. Can’t get more American than that.
El Dorado was a treat. It was essentially Rio Bravo Redux, but what a great formula: Robert Mitchum = Dean Martin, James Caan = Ricky Nelson, Arthur Hunnicut = Walter Brennan, Ed Asner = Claude Akins, Same basic plot, but seeing Wayne, Mitchum, and Caan in the same scenes makes you forget all of that. Great stuff.
