Guest curated by Jon Burlingame, the nation’s leading writer on music for films and television, the September/October screenings demonstrate the range and power of film scores in the Western genre.
With an all-star cast, this epic Western secured a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for Ives and a nomination for Jerome Moross’s landmark musical score. The film’s music is rooted in American folk idioms and has inspired the scores in subsequent Westerns. Screened in 35 mm.
