Rio Bravo one is wonderful and Rock certainly had Paul Prentiss fooled in 'Man's Favourite Sport' :o)

Thanks for commenting Jools. Yep all the women fancied Rock, but did he fancy them? [cue ominous music] ;)

Howard Hawks is one of my favorite directors of all-time. His Bringing Up Baby is the movie that got me to like classic movies. I just re-watched his Rio Bravo movie a couple of days ago. I had forgotten how much I liked the Ricky Nelson role, Colorado. Other favorite Hawks movies would include Red River, His Girl Friday, El Dorado(boy was James Caan really young back then) and The Big Sleep....great posters. I hope your hub does better than my Hawks hub....as it is currently my least viewed hub. Good luck and good work.

"You're not taking me to the cooler" sorry coolerking couldn't resist quoting Mr. Freeeze from the award-winning Batman & Robin.

Love Rio Bravo, one of my favourite westerns, Red River is another Hawks fave. Sorry to hear your Hawks hub isn't doing as well as your others.

Thanks coolerking, appreciate the comment and kind words.
