Rio Lobo ★★½ 1970 (G)

Hawks's final film takes place after the Civil War, when Union Colonel Wayne goes to Rio Lobo to take revenge on two traitors. Disappointing. The Duke has to carry weak supporting performances on his brawny shoulders—and nearly does. 114m/C VHS, DVD . John Wayne, Jorge (George) Rivero, Jennifer O'Neill, Jack Elam, Chris Mitchum, David Hud-dleston, George Plimpton; D: Howard Hawks; C: William Clothier; M: Jerry Goldsmith.
