A small-town sheriff in the American West enlists the help of a cripple, a drunk, and a young gunfighter in his efforts to hold in jail the brother of the local bad guy.
Rio Bravo finds director Howard Hawks — and his stellar ensemble cast — working at peak performance, and the end result is a towering classic of the Western genre.
