THE OX-BOW INCIDENT

Directed by William Wellman
Starring Henry Fonda and Harry Morgan

(1943) In 1885 Nevada, cowpokes Henry Fonda and Harry (M*A*S*H) Morgan find a trail break in town turning into a lynch mob frenzy, with Dana Andrews, Anthony Quinn and Francis Ford (John’s older brother) ticketed for the rope—but are they really guilty? Wellman’s labor of love shattered sagebrush stereotypes. DCP. Approx. 75 min.

“A thrilling experience… A significant moment for our culture.”
– Manny Farber

“In a little over an hour, it exhibits most of the baser shortcomings of men—cruelty, blood-lust, ruffianism, pusillanimity and sordid pride. It shows a tragic violation of justice with little backlash to sweeten the bitter draught. And it puts a popular actor, Henry Fonda, in a very dubious light. But it also points a moral, bluntly and unremittingly, to show the horror of mob rule. And it has the virtue of uncompromising truth.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

BROKEN ARROW

Directed by Delmer Daves
Starring James Stewart

(1950) James Stewart’s Tom Jeffords makes peace with Apache chief Cochise (Oscar-nominated Jeff Chandler, née Ira Grossel of Brooklyn) in dramatized version of the true story, and fictionally mixes the races with then 16 year-old Debra Paget, in first of the post-war positive-Native-American films. 35mm. Approx. 93 min.

“Everybody seems to enjoy this movie… It has probably done more to soften the hearts of racists than most movies designed to instruct, indict, and inspire.”
– Pauline Kael
