Summary
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
