YMMV / Rio Bravo

  • Crowning Moment of Funny
    • Chance: "I'm heading down to the hotel." Stumpy: "Well if'n you don't comeback, me and Dude'll have us a good cry."
    • John Wayne calling Walter Brennan a treasure and kissing him on the head.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Rio Bravo was a huge success in Italy, laying the groundwork for the following decade's Spaghetti Western boom.
  • He Really Can Act: Despite appearing to call for nothing more than John Wayne's typical performance, the film lets him show more range than usual, as Chance has quite a few vulnerable moments where it's clear how worried he really is about making it through the standoff. He also gets really flustered in his scenes with Feathers.
  • What Could Have Been: IMDb claims that Howard Hawks first choice for Colorado was Elvis Presley, but "Colonel" Parker's salary demands were too high.
