Women of the West Film Series: Johnny Guitar

Women of the West Film Series: <i> Johnny Guitar </i>
Tuesday, May 16th, 6:30pm
Jack Guenther Pavilion at the Briscoe Museum

Johnny Guitar (1954/NR/110 min.)
Strong-willed saloon-casino owner Vienna (Joan Crawford) squares off against her nemesis, the shrieking Emma Small, who wrongly blames Vienna for her brother's death.

Our fourth annual Briscoe Museum Film Series is dedicated to Women of the West. The Western film genre has long been a man’s territory where women are relegated to the sidelines and reduced to one-dimensional characters. This summer we present four films with strong female protagonists—each complex, unique, and a far cry from a damsel in distress.  Mosey on over for fun, food from The Box Street Social truck, and free beer provided by Ranger Creek! The Museum remains open late (9:00pm) every Tuesday, so make sure to check out the galleries before and after the movie.
