Sunny Ridge - 6PM-8:30PM - Cowboy Movie Night

February 7th's Movie: Fort Apache (1948)

All hands, the ranch foreman just put out a warning to all ranch riders not to be too brave during this warm spell of Chinook weather. Many a cowhand has met his fate by riding off of the ranch on a seemingly nice day, only to parish in a surprise blizzard that usually follows a Chinook.

Also, a reminder that the movie, Fort Apache, will be shown next Wednesday, February 7th at 6 P.M. in the Sunny Ridge basement theater. Fort Apache is the first of John Ford's Cavalry Trilogy and is considered by many to be the best of the three.

The story follows a famous Civil War officer who is newly assigned as commanding officer of Fort Apache. He is somewhat of an egotistical martinet and operates by the book. He soon finds out that things out west are different than in the east and that fighting Apaches is different than fighting confederate soldiers. He immediately clashes with an experienced Captain over tactics and policies. He also is not happy that his 19 year old daughter has gotten into a love relationship with a recent West Point graduate.

Filmed in Monument Valley Utah, the movie has some good action scenes and is unique for a movie made in 1948 as it depicts the Native Americans as victims of the U.S. Government policies.

The movie stars Henry Fonda, John Wayne, Shirley Temple, Pedro Amendariz, Ward Bond, Anna Lee, Irene Rich, George O'Brien and Victor McLagen.

Happy Trails.
