This will be a private home screening - NOT at BloomBars! I have not decided on the date. In John Ford's masterful film, John Wayne stars as a Civil War veteran who embarks on an epic journey to rescue his niece from an Indian tribe. The screening will be followed by discussion. We will be asking our group to OBSERVE the film's narrative elements - setting, theme, plot, characters, point of view, tone, and imagery / symbolism - to EXPLORE the film-making techniques Ford uses to tell the story. I will pop popcorn, and I'm asking that guests bring a beverage or other snacks. The Searchers (1956, 119 min), directed by John Ford - a 1956 American Technicolor VistaVision Western film, based on the 1954 novel by Alan Le May, set during the Texas–Indian Wars, and starring John Wayne as a middle-aged Civil War veteran who spends years looking for his abducted niece (Natalie Wood), accompanied by his adoptive nephew (Jeffrey Hunter). Critic Roger Ebert found Wayne's character, Ethan Edwards, "one of the most compelling characters Ford and Wayne ever created." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELkEfi8ibGM What: The Searchers When: TBD Where: A private residence Parking and Directions: Street parking available on Chillum Place.
