Dr. Sue Matheson, an authority on the Western Movie genre, will host the event and a Q&A session. Dr. Matheson’s research and book celebrate the life and cinematic vision of the film’s director, John Ford—a name synonymous with Hollywood Westerns.

About the Film: 1876. Cavalry Captain John Brittles (played by John Wayne) is called for one last mission before retirement. His Job: escort his commander’s wife and daughter to safety amid the fallout of Gen. Custer’s crushing defeat at Little Big Horn. With hell poised to break loose between Native Americans and US settlers, Brittles’ rag-tag troop approaches the women’s train station only to find it overrun with hostile Native American warriors. If Brittle’s turns back, the lives of his wards are still in danger. If he presses on, he may start the war he was ordered to avoid.
