The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance


Dir. John Ford. 1962, 123 mins. Archival 35mm print. With James Stewart, John Wayne, Lee Marvin.Who shot the vicious outlaw Liberty Valance? Was it the law-and-order senator (Stewart), representing the new order, or the rugged gunsman (Wayne), representing the pioneer tradition? There are no easy answers in this twilight western that serves as Ford’s profound summation and reevaluation of his earlier movies.
