True Grit

Part of our Six-Gun Summer Series.

In many ways, this is the last of the classic Westerns. Spaghetti Westerns were asserting themselves and would soon evolve into the Acid Western. But here we have John Wayne orating and shooting his way into “Indian Territory” on behalf of his young charge, who chases after her father’s murderer. Its stylized dialogue, blacklisted screenwriter, and unheroic hero gesture toward changing Western taste, but True Grit is something of a last stand.

Under the Gun

This screening is a community partnership with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and The Faith Coalition Against Gun Violence.

Through the lens of families impacted by the mass shootings in Newtown, Aurora, Isla Vista and Tucson, as well as those who experience daily gun violence in Chicago, the documentary looks at why politicians are finding it difficult to act and what is being done at the state and local levels. The film is executive produced and narrated by Katie Couric.

High Noon

Part of our Six-Gun Summer Series.

Playing out in real-time, the screws slowly tighten on the sheriff of a small town as he realizes he must face a group of bandits alone. Though a perennial favorite of U.S. presidents, John Wayne called it “the most un-American thing” he’d ever seen. Its screenwriter was nearly blacklisted, but the Soviet Union criticized the film’s “glorification of the individual.” And yet, we all see the same thing: the nerve-jangling study of a man sweating bullets, until he has to shoot them.

Once Upon a Time in the West
