In this old clip from the 1959 Western Rio Bravo, a very young Ricky Nelson sings a rousing and soulful cowboy song that is so hard to sing well that even John Wayne couldn’t do it.

Rio Bravo, 1959, for those of you who are young and don’t know what we’re talking about. Howard Hawks made and directed this American western with John Wayne, Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson, Angie Dickinson, Walter Brennan, and Ward Bond in the lead roles.

Due to his unique personality, John Wayne became very well-known during his career. He has been one of the oldest and most talented actors on screen for most of his career. He was a soldier and a cowboy at the same time. He has always been hard to figure out. Wayne was very good at keeping a serious attitude, which made him one of the most famous and well-known actors of his time.

But in this scene from the 1959 movie Rio Bravo, Wayne’s character shows an unusual side as he sings the song with Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson.

It was a lot of fun to see and hear his proof, and it’s always nice to listen to a great song. Watch the video below to see this beautiful musical moment with John Wayne from Rio Bravo.

Written by Jules Fartman and Lee Brackett, it was based on the short story “Rio Bravo” by B. H. On McCambell. In this movie, the sheriff of Rio Bravo, Texas, puts a local rancher’s brother in jail so he can help a drunk worker.

They stopped the group of ranchers with the help of Khegandam and a young gunman. Rio Bravo was filmed outside of Tucson at Technicolor’s Old Tucson Studios. Rio Bravo was put in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2014 because it was “important culturally, historically, or aesthetically.”

Now, just sit back, relax, and let this musical performance take you back in time.
