Members’ Movie Night: Warlock (1959)
On Wednesday November 20, 2013 at 8:00 pm in Dryden Theatre
Members are invited to a free movie once a month, chosen by our curatorial staff. This month, it's Warlock (Edward Dmytryk, US 1959, 122 min., 35mm) from the Dryden series CinemaScope at 60.
Reformed outlaw Johnny Gannon (Richard Widmark) and revered gunslinger Clay Blaisedell (Henry Fonda) team up to rid the titular mining town of a gang of wayward cowboys. Forgoing the law, Warlock’s Citizens’ Committee opts to place their fate in the hands of two men who have existed largely outside of it. Anthony Quinn and Dorothy Malone co-star, with the former turning out a standout performance as Blaisedell’s club-footed right-hand man. Dmytryk’s tense, psychological western tackles the themes of law, morality, and warring personalities during the demise of the Old West.
Regular prices for non-members.
