“All I want is to enter my house justified.” Aging Western stars Joel McCrea and Randolph Scott (in his final role) play aging legendary lawmen who take one last job in a Brave New West that has replaced heroes with bureaucrats. A work of great beauty and sadness and a crucial film that helped establish the tradition of the elegiac western, Ride the High Country laments both the passing of the West and of the classic Western film. Lucien Ballard’s gorgeous widescreen cinematography showcases the natural beauty of California’s Inyo National Forest. (35mm Presentation)
