Chisholm Film Series: The Cowboys
July 27, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail by watching how life on the cattle trail was depicted by Hollywood in four movies. The first movie in our series is “The Cowboys” starring John Wayne and Bruce Dern. Released in 1972, John Wayne plays Will Anderson, a crusty veteran cattleman preparing a 400-mile drive to get a herd of steers to market. When his crew quits suddenly, he has no choice but to recruit eleven boys and teach them the basics of herding cattle and riding the range. (Rating: PG, Runtime: 123 minutes)
