The Role of Westerns in Shaping the American Experience
Feb. 27, 2017 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

American movie audiences embraced the Western genre in the 20th century. Featuring strong heroes in heart-stopping action on horseback, amid magnificent, rugged landscapes, Westerns influenced the behavior and even the ideology of a nation. Their gripping stories were principled tales in which good always triumphed over evil.

Just how these stories shaped the American lifestyle will be explored at this year’s Lone Pine Film Festival via screenings, presentations and panel discussions. The festival will be held Oct. 6 through 8.

The Friday night screening will be Sergeant RutledgeLieutenant Tom Cantrell is sent to defend Sergeant Braxton Rutledge, a black cavalry soldier, on a charge of rape and murder. Set in a courtroom and told in flashback through witnesses’ testimony, the shocking truth about the crimes gradually comes to light. The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Bob Boze Bell, the Editor/Publisher of True West magazine, who will discuss with John Langellier the film, the Buffalo Soldiers, and how Director John Ford dealt with racism.

The Image of the American Cowboy: John Wayne and John Ford - will be the focus of the Saturday morning, High School Quad panel program. The panel, led by Ben Mankiewicz will discuss the image of the American Western hero. Among the panel members will be Scott Eyman, the author of biographies of both Wayne and Ford; Bob Boze Bell, the Editor/Publisher of True West magazine; and Ed Hulse, Western film historian and the author of Filming the West of Zane Grey.

TCM’s Ben Mankiewicz returns this year to host our Saturday evening keynote program featuring Scott Eyman, author of definitive biographies of John Ford and John Wayne. Eyman’s new book explores the 50-year friendship between Henry Fonda and James Stewart, along with a screening of their film The Cheyenne Social Club.

Our Western heroes heroes modeled the American ideal on the big and small screen. During the mid-century there were more than 30 hours of television programming that featured Westerns, including Gunsmoke, Rifleman, Rawhide, Have Gun Will Travel and Bonanza. Superstar characters like Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone Ranger and Roy Rogers didn’t just fill the dreams of the nation’s youth – the entire TV panoply generated millions of dollars in merchandising revenue.

A further highlight this year will be a tribute to Robert Mitchum, in honor of his 100th birthday. Join William Wellman and Historian, Ed Hulse for a discussion on Mitchum's career following a screening of his first starring role in Nevada.

Additional topics, celebrities and panels will be posted on the website: www.lonepinefilmfestival.org as finalized. Tickets will go on sale July, 2017.
