Once More with Feelings. On his last day as Cinematheque director, John Ewing presents big-screen showings of his three all-time favorite movies. Join us!


United States | 1953 | George Stevens

SHANE film still

John Ewing’s all-time favorite film is the one that hooked him on movies almost 60 years ago. George Stevens’ celebrated western concerns a feud between cattlemen and homesteaders in late 19th-century Wyoming—and the mysterious stranger who sides with the “sodbusters.” Based on a novel by Cleveland-born Jack Schaefer, this tense, exciting movie tells a great, archetypal story that is at once frontier actioner, coming-of-age saga, love story, and metaphysical allegory. With Alan Ladd, Jean Arthur, Van Heflin, Brandon de Wilde, and Jack Palance. DCP. 118 min. Preceded at 7:00 by John Ewing’s 8-min. silent comedy The Myth of Narcissus (USA, 1972).
