Jorge Rivero, Jennifer O’Neill and Sherry Lansing in Rio Lobo (1970).   The casting wasn’t the best, as Howard Hawks always liked to have another strong male character opposite John Wayne, and Jennifer O’Neill had the look but not the talent.  Still, the acting was much better than his 60’s flop. Red Line 7000.
