Ashman Film Fest presents Johnny Guitar (1954)
Johnny Guitar (1954)
Dir: Nicholas Ray
Joan Crawford plays Vienna, a saloon owner with a sordid past. Persecuted by the townspeople, Vienna must protect her life and her property when a lynch mob led by her sexually repressed rival, Emma Small (Mercedes McCambridge), attempts to frame her for a string of robberies she did not commit. Enter Johnny Guitar (Sterling Hayden), a guitar-strumming ex-gunfighter who has a history with Vienna.
Misunderstood by US audiences upon release, the film was embraced by European cineastes and is now regarded as one of the greatest western pictures of all time. An intensely stylised masterpiece from director Nicholas Ray - Eureka Video
Not rated. 110 mins.
Anime Club: Samurai Champloo
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 Champloo. Mugen is a ferocious, animalistic warrior with a fighting style inspired by break-dancing. Jin is a ronin samurai who wanders the countryside alone. They may not be friends, but their paths continually cross. And when ditzy waitress Fuu gets them out of hot water with the local magistrate, they agree to join her search for the samurai who smells like sunflowers.
This anime is appropriate for ages 13 and up.
