Pic of the Day: “Rio Conchos” revisited

Today we revisit Rio Conchos (1964) and Timothy’s disreputable cantina proprietor Chico. Nothing phases Chico too much, as long as his dinner is not interrupted and he gets something out of it, preferably monetary.

Rio Conchos was directed by Gordon Douglas, who helmed such notable films as the sci-fi classic Them! (1954) and Frank Sinatra‘s The Detective (1968). He was not entirely satisfied with his directorial career, however. He once said, “Don’t try to watch all the films I’ve directed; it would turn you off movies forever.”
