‘Rio Lobo’ Movie Summary

Col. Cord McNally loses his friend, Lt. Ned Forsythe, when Confederate thieves raid a Union army payroll train for it’s gold during the Civil War. McNally and his men take chase, but the pursuit thins them out until McNally is alone.

The Confederates capture McNally, but he eventually overpowers the leaders, Cordona and Philips, and the Union captures them instead. McNally tries to learn who the identity of the traitors are who sold out the Union. However, they won’t rat the men out, and are thrown into a northern prison.

Time passes, and the war ends. McNally visits the two upon their release from jail, and asks them about the traitors again. The three have a newfound respect for each other, but they can’t provide any names to McNally; only physical descriptions. McNally tells them that he will be in Blackthorne, Texas if they ever have any new information. Philips plans to return to his hometown of Rio Lobo, Texas which is nearby. The three men go their separate ways.
