El Dorado Movie Summary
Bart Jason, a wealthy cattleman with a dubious reputation, brings Cole Thornton, a gunslinger-for-hire in post-Civil War Texas, to the town of El Dorado. Bart is in need of Thornton’s sharp shooting abilities because he intends to strong arm the deeds to the local watering holes away from the MacDonald clan, who had legally staked their claims two decades prior.
JP Harrah, Thornton’s old pal and the sheriff of El Dorado warns him of the nefarious job. However, before Thornton can get himself free and clear of the local range war, he takes the life of the youngest MacDonald son, in an act of self-defense. The MacDonald’s only daughter, Joey, then shoots Thornton in revenge.
Thornton spends the next six months traveling about Texas, trying to deal with the MacDonald clan shootings. While in the town of Sonora, Thornton encounters a young gambler by the name of Alan Bourdillion Traherne, who is seeking revenge for the murder of his friend and mentor.read full summary
