For all you cowboys:
See Stagecoach, 1939
Director: John Ford
Starring: Claire Trevor, and OC’s own John Wayne.
Premise: n the town of Tonto in the 1880's, a motley group of strangers boards an eastbound stagecoach to the New Mexico Territory. The simple stagecoach trip is complicated by the fact that Geronimo is on the warpath in the area. The passengers on the coach include a drunken doctor, two women, a bank manager who has taken off with his client's money, and the famous Ringo Kid, among others. They come across the Ringo Kid, whose horse had become lame and left him on foot, and he's taken into custody. When they reach Dry Fork, they are informed that the expected cavalry detachment has moved on to Apache Wells. The passengers have to decide whether to press on or turn back.
When: Sunday, April 25th, 11AM, Edwards Islands 4
