Picture Perfect: Apr. 30 - Four Faces of the Western Hero
The western must be the most adaptable of cinematic genres – which seems funny, in a way, since the figures at its core are so resolute. Reflect on the evolution of the western hero with music from four contrasting films, including Shane (Victor Young), High Noon (Dimitri Tiomkin), A Fistful of Dollars (Ennio Morricone), and Outland (Jerry Goldsmith). From the high plains to outer space, the spirit of the mythic West endures, this Saturday at 6 pm.
