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

April 3rd's Movie: Rio Grande (1950)

Good Day to You All,

I'm hoping all of you buckaroos were able to keep track of your hats this past month. I don't remember a March were there were so many consecutive days with winds steady at 20-30 mph. It was, however, a great month for tumbling tumbleweed races as the thorny buggers blew across the landscape and stuck in the fences.

Hopefully, April will bring a little more decent weather. April will also be the last month for a cowboy movie on Cowboy Movie Night. In May we will be showing movies from other genres.

The movie for Wednesday, April 3rd will the third and final movie of the John Ford Cavalry Trilogy with John Wayne. John Wayne stars in "Rio Grande" along with Maureen O'Hara, Ben Johnson, Chill Wills, Claude Jarman, Harry Carry, Jr., J. Carroll Nash and Victor McLaglen. Wayne is again, a cavalry officer commanding troops against the Apaches who keep raiding and killing then cross back into Mexico. It is a vexing problem but Lt. Col. Yorke (Wayne) has a plan to defeat the Apaches but it could lead to a court marshal. In addition to dealing with the Apaches, Lt. Col. Yorke is in a battle with his wife, complicated by his son being a new recruit in the outfit.

Movie starts at 6 PM and is shown in the Sunny Ridge basement theater. Snacks and beverages are provided by our small but capable posse. Running time for this feature is 105 minutes.
