Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
We’ve featured directors Hitchcock, Spielberg, Henson, Dante and Carpenter and now we get to one of the old school greats: Mr. Howard Hawks.
And boy what a pic. Hawks, rocking a cowboy and looking up at the unbelievably hot young Angie Dickinson. Can I hear an amen?
Rio Bravo was a flick I came to rather late (covering it early in my run of A Movie A Day), but one that I was on-board with after the opening scene that tells us everything we need to know about Dean Martin’s Dude and John Wayne’s Sheriff John T. Chance without one word of dialogue spoken.
The flick is a master class in western filmmaking. Hawks plays with western iconography and archetypes and makes it so damn timelessly entertaining. Walter Brennan’s worth a watch by himself even if you ignore Dean Martin’s surprisingly layered turn as the town drunk, Wayne at his most cocksure and Dickinson as her most hottie-hotness.
Anyway, here’s the pic! Enjoy!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes pic features a giant cock-punch! See ya’ then!
