September 5: The Shootist (1976); PG; 1hr 40min

The Shootist features the story of notorious gun-fighter J. B. Books. Books, who comes to Carson City, Nevada and receives a grim prognosis from his physician. Learning he has only weeks left to live, Books takes up residence at the boarding house of the widow, Mrs. Bond Rogers and her incorrigible son Gillom. As word of Book’s condition spread he is forced to recon with his reputation as well as his mortality. Before deciding to shorten his suffering in one last battle he takes Gillom under his wing to teach him how to be a man of principle.
