Sunday October 1
Sunday October 1
Director: Cecil B. DeMille
1931 / 107min / 35mm

“In DeMille’s third adaption of the play of the same name, The Squaw Man finds British aristocrat Jim Wingate (Warner Baxter) on the lam after taking the fall for his cousin’s embezzlement scheme. He flees to Montana under a pseudonym, taking over a ranch and soon saving Naturich (Lupe Vélez), an Indigenous woman, from the unwanted advances of a bootlegger. After marrying her and having a son, Jim’s new life in the Wild West and his family are upended by his own racism and selfishness when he learns his name has been cleared and he can return home to England.”—Series curator Adam Piron
