. I.'io I Iravo • Wins By C.FORtiE BOl'RKK HtrtM Amiratnt Ullti Rio Bravo, at the Olympia, Beach and Gables, is a tight, tense and yet frequently rib-tickling Western that has been wisely cast with John Wayne, for the seniors; Dean Martin for the intermediates, and Ricky Nelson for the juniors. But even aside lrom thi-i thoughtful and box-office insurance casting. Rio Bravo has a raft of fine qualities entertainment-wise Howard Hawks' direction is almost flawless with a tempo that injects humor, some dry some raucous, as a handy antibiotic for the story* frequent le\erish outbursts of violence. The story it a one u ilh the true meat of the pro-('pfdlnis stemming from characterization rather than plot ntri\ ance. In order, the players are John Wayne, as a sheriff who defends Dean Martin, a former pun export turned barfly, and finds himself with a prisoner accused of murder; John Russell. as the prisoners important brother who cant run Wayne; Ricky Nelson as a noncommittal youngster who is also no slouch with a gun, Angie Dickinson, as the lone lass in the footage, and Walter Brennan, as a cantankerous deputy sheriii wiio resents his infirmity. That should set the plot for you. Russell lays aiege to the town to force release of his brother and in the crucible-like situation that follows Martin reclaims his decency, Nelson proses his maturity. Miss Angie finds reason to cut loose from her shady past, and Brennan satisfies himself and others that he is an able-bodied fellow. Ward Bond is on for a brief appearance — as a wag- on-master!
