Classic Movie Corner: Rio Bravo
Starring John Wayne, Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson, and Walter Brennan, Rio Bravo tells the story of Sheriff John T. Chance (Wayne) as he tries to protect his small town from murderer Joe Burdette and his obscenely wealthy brother, Nathan. But after his close friend Pat Wheeler is gunned down in the street, Sheriff Chance is left with only a ragtag band of heroes: Stumpy (Brennan), an elderly deputy with a bad leg; Dude (Martin), a sharpshooter who always hits his mark—when he’s sober; and Colorado Ryan (Nelson), a young ranch hand who used to work for Wheeler.
Saddle up the horses and make your way down to Bristol Public Library for Rio Bravo at 5:30 p.m. in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room. Popcorn and water will be available to all movie attendees.
