The Searchers
Tuesday, Apr 16, 2019 7:00 PM
119 min | Dir. John Ford | NR | 1956

You will find THE SERACHERS on almost all lists of the best Westerns ever made. It is truly a masterpiece of film making, often cited as director John Ford’s greatest work. The Technicolor wide-screen cinematography is exquisite. But its treatment of Native Americans—and it’s evasion of the truth on which the story is based—are a challenge for today’s film-goers. What really happened when a young white settler was abducted by the Comanches? And what is Teddy Roosevelt doing in this story? Come and find out. THE SEARCHERS is presented as part of Print the Legend: Classic American Westerns. Each film starts with a lively introduction from film expert Nina Kleinberg and is followed by a Q&A.
