Double Feature: CAT BALLOU, 1965, Sony Repertory, 97 min. Dir. Elliot Silverstein. Jane Fonda plays the title role in this comedic hit, named by the AFI as one of the top 10 Westerns of all time.

THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, 1962, Paramount, 119 min. James Stewart and John Wayne represent opposing but equally necessary forces in John Ford’s great, late Western: Stewart is an unassuming lawyer who rises to political prominence as he civilizes the West, while Wayne is the man of violent action rendered obsolete by the passage of time. Vera Miles costars as the woman both men love, with additional support from Lee Marvin, Lee Van Cleef, Woody Strode and John Carradine. {35mm}
