Rio Conchos

Rio Conchos is a 1964 Western starring Stuart Whitman, Richard Boone, Jim Brown, Edmund O'Brien and Tony Franciosa. The music is by the prolific Jerry Goldsmith. Director Gordon Douglas, who began his film career as a child actor, has directoral credits from 1934 to 1977. This is another fine Western. Why are there so many good Westerns I've never heard of? Sad. But discovering them is fun.

DVD Talk says, "Rio Conchos on the surface may look like a mid-sized studio Western with second-tier stars, but it's surprising hefty when it comes to mixing ideas and action." TCM has an overview. It has a 40% critics rating at Rotten Tomatoes.


  1. I haven't heard of this one either. Your blog always informs me that I don't know about a lot of movies and books.

    1. i always knew there were more books i didn't know about than did, but i had no idea there were so many movies! there are so many of each that i think reading a list of movies released and books published would take longer than i'll live! there's no way i'll ever even know about most of them. lol
