The original version of El Dorado. much better. dean martin is great, ricky nelson (colorado) is even better than james caan (mississippi). john wayne is better as himself in rio bravo than he is in el dorado, if you can believe that. i think the script has a lot to do with it. played up the relationship with john wayne and dean martin (the once great deputy, now drunk) better in this one too. very good flick. i can see why quentin tarantino makes all his girlfriends watch it.
