John Wayne and Charlene Holt in a publicity still for El Dorado (1966).  This is Charlene’s third film in a row with Howard Hawks, after Man’s Favorite Sport (1964) as Rock Hudson’s girlfriend, and Red Line 7000 (1965) as the owner of the race car driver’s hangout.  El Dorado is easily her best of the three, but it didn’t lead to much of a career.
