For our September Cinema Classics screenings, we proudly present a 35mm print of John Ford’s THE SEARCHERS. The screening on 9/7 is free for Hollywood Theatre members!
John Wayne stars as Ethan Edwards, an ex-confederate soldier who believes in bullets over words, who embarks on a quest to save his kidnapped niece (Natalie Wood) from the Comanches. Paving the way for the anti-hero films of the 1970s, Wayne’s fantastic performance walks the line between heroism and madness.
Considered one of the best westerns of all time, THE SEARCHERS uncovers the complexity of humanity against the vibrant open landscape of middle America. Ranked among John Ford’s greatest films, and certainly among his most discomfiting, THE SEARCHERS is a study in isolation and obsession that pulls no punches.
