This Always Makes Me Smile

The movie El Dorado is one of the most entertaining westerns ever made. John Wayne. Robert Mitchum as a drunken sheriff, and James Caan spouting poetry every juncture. Add in the 1967 soundtrack (that always sounds like the old batman soundtrack when they are sneaking around) and it is classic. I was going to say it was a ridiculous western. But that isn't true. It just doesn't take itself too seriously. It never fails to make me smile.

And I really needed a smile today.

(And I also can't believe the prices at Amazon - I paid much less. This is a movie I can watch over and over again. This and Rio Bravoare two of my favorite John Wayne westerns. Rio Bravo, which is almost exactly the same story is also worth watching.)
