In the small Texas town of Rio Bravo, law and order is maintained by three unlikely enforcers: hard-boiled sheriff Chance; former quick draw artist Dude, now gone drunk and disheveled; and the crippled, wisecracking Stumpy, who patrols the jail with a shotgun. The arrest and incarceration of Joe Burdette for murder has set these three at odds with his brother, corrupt and wealthy landowner Nathan Burdette. Nathan assembles a force of hired guns to spring Joe, while Chance enlists hotshot gunslinger Colorado. Complications arise in the form of Feathers -- not the usual saloon floozy but a competent professional gambler accustomed to sparring with men -- who has an eye for Chance

"A major influence on everything from the films of Martin Scorese, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and David Lynch to the pop art of Andy Warhol to MTV, Anger's work serves as a talisman of universal symbols and personal obsessions, combining myth, artifice and ritual to render cinema with the power of spell or incantation."--Publisher's web site

Through the novel power of television, Ricky Nelson became one of the first artists for audiences to see and hear simultaneously. At the end of each episode of the hit TV show The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, Nelson would perform a song. His on-air cover of Fats Domino's I'm Walkin' went to number two on the Billboard chart. Rock 'n' roll was considered salacious and scandalous in the mainstream '50s, and weekly the "nice Nelson boy" smuggled it into living rooms across America, making it acceptable to parents. Bringing teenagers far greater access to rock 'n' roll in this way was arguably Ricky Nelson's most important contribution to music. (51 minutes) A streaming videorecording
