WINCHESTER ’73

Directed by Anthony Mann
Starring James Stewart and Stephen McNally

(1950) James Stewart relentlessly pursues both slimy Stephen McNally and the rifle of the title through shooting contests, Indian attacks, and the spectacular late entrance of guest villain Dan Duryea, to a climactic shootout and last minute twist. 35mm. Approx. 92 min.
12:30, 4:15, 8:00

“Broke new ground in soiling Stewart’s white hat and launching him on a path of neuroticism and blood-guilt retribution.”
– The Village Voice

“Humanizes an overworked genre with natural dialogue, acting and a director’s original ‘film eye’.”
– Manny Farber

“Stewart’s seismic shock of recognition when he first spots McNally is a peak of action-film performance.”
– Michael Sragow, The New Yorker

“Symbolizes a mid-century, postwar loss of innocence as depicted through the lens of a mid-19th-century story.”
– Eric Monder, Film Journal

BEND OF THE RIVER

Directed by Anthony Mann

(1952) Ex-outlaw James Stewart thinks he’s left the bad days behind while guiding a wagon train to Oregon country, but then genial doppelganger Arthur Kennedy turns up to reminisce in between mutual life-saving exploits, leading to a climactic, purgative showdown. 35mm. Approx. 91 min.
2:25, 6:10, 9:55

“Mann’s most satisfying Western… Fully justifies his description as the Virgil of the West.”
– Phil Hardy
