MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, THE
"When the legend becomes fact, print the legend." John Ford's haunting tribute to the men who built the old West. Sharp-shooter John Wayne is a well-respected but rough-and-tumble individualist in love with pretty waitress Vera Miles. When James Stewart comes to town armed only with a law degree and idealism, the two men quickly butt heads, but when outlaw Lee Marvin threatens the peace, they unite — and in the process usher in statehood and modern ideals of law and order. DIR/PROD John Ford; SCR James Warner Bellah; SCR/PROD Willis Goldbeck. U.S., 1962, b&w, 123 min. NOT RATED
