The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

The Second Sunday Free Film is "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" from 2:00-4:00 p.m. in the Fortnightly. This 1962 film starring John Wayne and James Stewart has been selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry at the Library of Congress. The story will grip your interest as it explores the power of violence in the development of the West and the power of leg-ends. The Hoosier connection is actor Strother Martin, Jr. born in Kokomo, Indiana. He is best known as the prison warden in the Paul Newman film, "Cool Hand Luke" (1967), speaking the now famous line, "What we got here is a failure to communicate." Note the return to mid-day showings. The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
