Man From LaramieAnthony Mann, 1955
Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.
“When you’re filming a western, people don’t want to see the inside of a cabin.”—Anthony Mann
Jimmy Stewart is best known for his collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock, but he also starred in five ground-breaking westerns directed in the 1950s by Anthony Mann. In The Far Country, Stewart plays a self-interested cattleman driving his herd to Alaska only to find himself in the middle of violent factions in a lawless mining town. (97 mins., 35mm)
In The Man from Laramie, Stewart stars as a man bent on revenge against a gun runner whose goods were used by raiding Indians to kill his brother. (104 mins., 35mm)
The Man from Laramie begins at 8:50 PM.
