Editorial Reviews

Rio Conchos: In avenging himself against the Apache Indians who have massacred his family, ex-Confederate Army officer Lassiter (Richard Boone) recovers a stolen U.S. Army repeating rifle and finds himself arrested by the U.S. Army in connection with the stolen firearm. Lassiter is offered his freedom if he leads a small group into Mexico, consisting of an Army captain (Stuart Whitman), a Buffalo Soldier sergeant (Jim Brown, in his film debut), a knife-wielding Mexican prisoner (Tony Franciosa) and an Apache woman warrior. After blasting their way through bandits and Apaches, they discover a megalomaniacal Confederate soldier (Edmond O Brien) selling guns to the Apaches.

Take A Hard Ride: Take a tough-as-nails trail boss (Jim Brown, The Dirty Dozen), a smooth gambler (Fred Williamson, Black Caesar), a ruthless bounty hunter (Lee Van Cleef, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly), a mute martial arts master (Jim Kelly, Enter The Dragon), a desperate prostitute (Catherine Spaak, Cat O’ Nine Tails) and hundreds of greed-crazed gunmen. Turn them all loose in a chase to the Mexican border for a fortune in gold, and you have the action-packed epic Take A Hard Ride. Hollywood legends Dana Andrews (Laura), Barry Sullivan (The Bad And The Beautiful) and Harry Carey Jr. (The Searchers) costar.

I had only caught part of "Rio Conchos" once on TV but it looked interesting. I am a Richard Boone fan so I gave it a shot and bought it. I am so glad I did. The picture quality is outstanding. I was a bit surprised by how good it looks. And although it has plenty of action and dramatic moments, it is funny too. I laughed out loud a couple of times. I highly recommend it and this DVD comes with another movie on it to boot!

Rio Conchos is another terrific western that I enjoyed seeing in the movies when I was a kid. I appreciate it that it has finally been released on DVD, but why with something like Take A Hard Ride as a second feature? 20th. Century Fox's excellent 1965 remake of Stagecoach with Ann-Margret, Bing Crosby, Mike Connors, Stefanie Powers, etc. has never been released. Can you imagine how excellent that would have been paired with Rio Conchos?
Anyway Rio Conchos teams an embittered indian-hating ex- confederate Major played by the always dependably great Richard Boone with a cavalry Captain played by Stuart Whitman and a sergeant played by Jim Brown (in his first motion-picture role.) Their job is to recover a shipment of rifles being sold to Boone's old (and crazed) Confederate Colonel, now based in Mexico, played in an insane performance by Edmond O' Brien. They are joined by an untrustworthy Mexican half-breed played in a showy performance by Tony Franciosa and an Apache woman in her movie debut by Wende Wagner (later Miss Case on The Green Hornet TV series.)
I've recently read that some believe that this is basically a remake of the wonderful John Wayne western: The Comancheros. I love both films, (although I like The Comancheros much better,) and interestingly I never realized the similarities between the two. Both films also co-star Stuart Whitman.
This film boasts fine performances from the entire cast, some good action and a great Jerry Goldsmith score.
The picture quality is okay although there were occassionally some red circles that would appear at the right top of the screen.
In conclusion, I'm glad this film was finally released, but just imagine how better it would have been with another quality western like Stagecoach? If they were going to release it with a mediocrity like Take A Hard Ride, perhaps thay just should have released it by itself.

I'm giving this five stars sight unseen simply because RIO CONCHOS is finally getting a dvd release! This is one of the best 1960's Westerns and one of my all-time favorites. Richard Boone shines in one of his classic roles, stealing every scene he's in, rivaling his KREMLIN LETTER and NIGHT OF THE FOLLOWING DAY performances. Simply great two-fisted action for the Western fan as Boone, Whitman, Fanciosa and Jim Brown ( in his first movie role ) take on Edmond O'Brien's gun-running empire. RIO CONCHOS would make an outstanding double bill with John Wayne's THE COMMANCHEROS, which is pretty much the same film ( done earlier ), and I can't wait to watch them both on a lazy summer afternoon as an excuse to get out of yard work.
The second feature on this disc is another Jim Brown Western, teaming Brown up with Spaghetti pro Lee Van Cleef under the direction of Antonio Margheriti. This one, from 1975, is somewhat offbeat as Westerns were looking for something a little different ( yet the same ) to keep the genre alive, and though it's enjoyable it just isn't in the same class as pre-1970 Westerns like RIO CONCHOS.
So strap on the ol' sixshooter, fill the canteen and ride the trail down to the RIO CONCHOS. When you get there you'll be humming the Jerry Goldsmith theme for days!

Rio Conchos is one of my favourite western movies probably due to the powerful performance of one of my all time admired actors in Richard Boone of Have Gun Will Travel fame. Other famous actors in Stuart Whitman and Anthony Franciosa also put in magnificent performances in this highly action-packed western. The other movie sees reknowned actor Lee Van Cleef who makes another memorable performance. Jim Brown heads the stong cast who is a standout in another gripping western. A great double for western fans.

Shout Factory did a great job on releasing these on DVD and the quality is great. All movies are in Widescreen and run for about 105mins for each movie. The special features included are the trailers and an interview with Fred Williamson and Jim Kelly on "Take a Hard Ride" menu, both movies are also on a single disk and it's not double sided. These movies star: Lee Van Cleef, Jim Brown, Richard Boone, Stuart Whitman, Fred Williamson, Harry Carey Jr., Dana Andrews, plus others! Overall, this is a great DVD and I would recommend it, especially to Western fans.

RIO CONCHOS (1964) is a 1 hour and 37 minute color film that was filmed in near Moab, Utah. The film stars Richard Boone, famed for starring in the Have Gun, Will Travel television series, and Tony Franciosa, who is very handsome and plays a tri-lingual Mexican (Spanish, English, Apache). In a nutshell, the story involves a theft of 6,000 rifles owned by the U.S. government and that were stolen by a former officer of the Confederacy named, "Pardee." A motley crew, comprising Boone, Franciosa, and actors playing a captain and a sergeant, is assembled, and the foursome set out to locate Pardee and to recover the stolen rifles. Notable scenes include a confrontation with a sleazy Mexican bandit, a shootout in a casino near a river ferry, an episode in a brothel, and Apache-style torture near Pardee's headquarters. The entire theme can be summed up by a line from Pardee, where he says, "A man turns his coat once, what's to prevent him from doing it again." And so, it is the case that this movie is about betrayals and reversals of betrayals. The movie takes place two years after Lee's surrender at Appomattox.

The movie opens up at FISHER TOWERS, UTAH. I immediately recognized this part of Utah, and at that moment decided that I must watch the movie from start to finish. Fisher Towers is an unusual series of natural stone towers, looking like they are from a futuristic science fiction movie. Generally, Fisher Towers is overlooked by tourists, because it is not within the boundaries of nearby Arches National Park or nearby Canyonlands National Park. Another scene near the beginning of the movie takes place near a hill, shaped like CANDLESTICK TOWER in CANYONLANDS NATIONAL PARK, and at the side of a river in the Moab area.
