Virtually a remake of Howard Hawks and Wayne's earlier 'Rio Bravo', 'El Dorado' brings a distinctive sixties flavour to this tale of male camaraderie and comedy in the Old West. In post-Civil War El Dorado, the town's alcoholic sheriff, J.P. Harrah (Robert Mitchum), does his best to battle the local cattle baron, Bart Jason (Edward Asner). Help is at hand, however, with the arrival of his old friend Cole Thornton (John Wayne), an ex-gunfighter who helps him to rid the town of Jason and his cronies.
