Rio Bravo / The Searchers (Double Feature)
Look up "Westerns" in a cinema dictionary and one name towers above the rest: John Wayne. Wayne heads up a notable cast (featuring Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson) in Howard Hawk's Rio Bravo. Wayne's portrayal of Sheriff John T. Chance ranks at the top of his finest screen performances as he brings to life the fearless sheriff bound and determined to thwart a gang of ruthless desperados threatening the peace in a small frontier town. in the iconic classic The Searchers, John Wayne and John Ford's 12th collaboration, these legendary artists achieve perhaps the finest moment in this epic story of an ex-Confederate soldier seeking retribution on rogue Native Americans who massacred his family.
