      Thanks Mark,

      I have tried looking for that book but all I can find is a hardcover edition that is very expensive. Anyone know of a softcover that might be more affordable? I say this understanding that it is probably out of print but its worth a shot to ask.

      The book is currently available at Amazon, paperback starting at around $20. A bit pricey for a paperback, but far more affordable than the $161 starting price for the hardcover!

      The only thing that keeps Rio Bravo ahead of EL Dorado is Stumpy. Caan and Nelson are a wash, as is Mitchum and Martin, but Brennan as Stumpy is the topper for me.

      This Harry Brown who wrote the book was a screen writer on movies. He did Sands of Iwo Jima.

      I also really liked this movie. Famed western artist Olaf Wieghorst did the art work for the opening of the movie and played the part of the gunsmith Swede Larsen. I was wondering if anyone has seen any new or old postcards showing his artwork?


      I want to thank you for your contribution to this conversation, and congratulate you on making your first post here! Welcome to the JWMB! We hope this is just the first of many more posts!

      Thanks, Arthur, for the information on the artist. We always enjoy the artwork at the beginning of the movie - a wonderful accompaniment to the opening score.

      I watched this again on Sunday Night. My all time favorite movie. (Yeah, I know I also said that about "Rio Bravo", but hey, that was last week! Next week it'll be "True Grit"!) Just a fun, entertaining movie. As much as I like Duke and Mitchum, James Caan as "Mississippi" is my favorite character in this one. Christopher George as McLeod was great too...kind of shades of Cherry Valance from "Red River". (bud)

      Every time I watch El Dorado I think it's better than Rio Bravo. On the other hand every time I watch Rio Bravo I would say Rio Bravo is better. I just cannot decide which is the better movie. Both are great and I rate both with 10/10.

      As mentioned before the artwork at the beginning together with the El Dorado Title Theme is wonderful. Same goes to Chisum. :teeth_smile:

      I like El Dorado, but it seems too rushed to me. I enjoy Rio Bravo more due to it going more into the backround of the relationship of the characters.
      That said, El Dorado has some great lines, and action scenes.

      El Dorado just isn't there for me which I suppose is due to the comparitive similarities in storylines with Rio Bravo. The cast in El Dorado is great and I certainly enjoyed them, however.

      I just watched El Dorado. Good humor and story line with a couple of beautiful women thrown in. Havent seen it in years. I JUST love the spotty bum [ Appaloosa ] JW rides in that movie. He was quite a horseman..
