WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Wednesday, Aug. 30, the Clark Art Institute concludes its five-part Summer Outdoor Movie Series with a screening of "Johnny Guitar."
The film screens outdoors near the Clark's Reflecting Pool, beginning at dusk (7:30 pm).
According to a press release:
One of the boldest and most stylized films of its time, Johnny Guitar (1954; 1 hour, 50 minutes) is quirky, political, and twisted—a psychosexual drama between two powerful women, wrapped up in the duds of a B-Western. Joan Crawford stars as the tavern-owner, Vienna. Her archenemy, Emma—a cattle baron (never baroness)—is played by Mercedes McCambridge.
Free. Bring a picnic and your own seating.
