EL DORADO (Theatrical Release USA 1967)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

El Dorado is probably one of John Wayne’s best works since The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. El Dorado uses some of the best western talent from the 1950s and 1960s to create one outstanding western: John Wayne, James Caan, Robert Mitchum, Edward Asner, and Arthur Hunnicutt. This is a great script and storyline; the portrayal is well done
