Flick Pick: El Dorado

El Dorado
(Paramount, 1967)

Second bite at the apple, this time nominally based on a novel by Harry Brown, with John Wayne alongside Robert Mitchum, James Caan and Arthur Hunnicutt, and Charlene Holt as the girl. This time around, there's an actual theme song, but the score was done by Nelson Riddle, which given the time frame it was made is why a lot of this one sounds an awful lot more like an episode of Batman with Adam West than it does a western.
