MAN OF THE WEST
DIRECTOR: ANTHONY MANN
CAST: GARY COOPER, JULIE LONDON, LEE J. COBB
"Man of the West, shot in magnificent CinemaScope by the inimitable Anthony Mann, produced by Walter Mirisch and United Artists (the enablers of the best movies from 1951 to 1978) features Gary Cooper, the biggest western star of them all, in his most iconic performance, is the summation of his entire career. If you like The Wild Bunch and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly as I do, you need to know it all starts with Man of the West."
Please note: Jonathan Demme was originally scheduled to attend this screening, but unfortunately had to cancel.
