"Fast-moving, exciting and totally engrossing...Wayne is pure gold." -Hollywood Reporter
A classic action-filled John Wayne western is set into motion with a spectacular robbery of a Union pay train by Confederate guerrillas. The train's colonel (Wayne) jails the enemy leaders but the three men later become friends when the war ends. Together they seek the Union traitors responsible for a string of Confederate train robberies, a mission that culminates in a rousing shoot-em up finale.
Rio Lobo was the fifth collaboration over a 22-year period between John Wayne and the legendary director Howard Hawks.
