The Gunfighter (1950)

Dir: Henry King

"A key forerunner of the new breed of dark, brooding westerns that would soon cast a shadow over America’s frontier folklore, this subversive psychological saga sounds a death knell for the myth of the outlaw hero. In one of his most morally complex roles, Gregory Peck stars as Jimmy Ringo, an infamous gunslinger looking to hang up his holsters and start a new life, but whose reputation draws him inexorably into a cycle of violence and revenge from which he cannot escape. Directed with taut efficiency by the versatile studio-era craftsman Henry King, and shot in striking deep-focus style by master cinematographer Arthur C. Miller, The Gunfighter forgoes rough-and-tumble action in favor of an elegiac exploration of guilt and regret that speaks to the anxious soul of postwar America.A key forerunner of the new breed of dark, brooding westerns that would soon cast a shadow over America’s frontier folklore, this subversive psychological saga sounds a death knell for the myth of the outlaw hero.

Love anime, or been wanting to get into it? Join us every Wednesday evening in September for Meadowridge Library Anime Club's Samurai September! Every Wednesday evening, we'll celebrate by watching an episode of a samurai anime. 

This week, we'll be watching Samurai 7. In this anime based on Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, a young priestess sets out on a quest to hire samurai to protect her village from a vicious breed of warrior that is more machine than man.

This anime is appropriate for ages 10 and up.
