Double Feature! Director Elliot Silverstein In Person!
CAT BALLOU / THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE

Discussion between films with director Elliot Silverstein.
CAT BALLOU
1965, Sony Repertory, 97 min, USA, Dir: Elliot Silverstein

Jane Fonda plays the title role in this comedic hit, named by the AFI as one of the top 10 Westerns of all time. Schoolteacher Catherine Ballou must resort to desperate measures when her father and his Wyoming ranch are targeted by the Wolf City Development Corporation, but the man she hires as a gunfighter turns out to be a drunk. For his dual role as inebriated Kid Shelleen and his assassin brother, Lee Marvin won a Best Actor Oscar. Among the memorable supporting performers are Nat King Cole and Stubby Kaye, who provide running musical commentary.


THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE
1962, Paramount, 119 min, Dir: John Ford

James Stewart and John Wayne represent opposing but equally necessary forces in John Ford’s great late Western: Stewart is an unassuming lawyer who rises to political prominence as he civilizes the West, while Wayne is the man of violent action rendered obsolete by the passage of time. Vera Miles co-stars as the woman both men love, with additional support from Lee Marvin, Lee Van Cleef, Woody Strode and John Carradine.
