VIRTUAL Classic Film Appreciation: Westerns "The Searchers"

1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Virtual

REVISITING TWO ICONIC WESTERNS: HIGH NOON & THE SEARCHERS

Join film scholar Francine J. Sanders for a look at two masterpieces from one of the defining genres in American cinema. We'll explore the role of race, the hero, the landscape and other genre conventions, as well as how the films also provide insight into the political and social climate of the 50’s era. You'll need to watch the film on your own prior to the discussion; if you'd like help with viewing options, please call the library's Reference Desk. You're welcome to attend one or both of the discussions, but attending both will give you the best experience. If you wish to attend both of the discussions, you'll need to sign up separately.

Sunday, July 18, 1-2:30 pm: High Noon (dir. Fred Zinnemann, 1952) A town marshal must face a gang of deadly killers alone when the gang leader, an outlaw he sent up years ago, arrives on the noon train. With Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly. 

Sunday, July 25, 1-2:30 pm: The Searchers (dir. John Ford, 1956) Starring John Wayne, this revered classic traces a Civil War veteran on a journey to rescue his niece from the Comanche tribe.

VIRTUAL Big Books / Vanity Fair

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Virtual

Over nine weeks, Big Books will tackle Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray. The discussions, which will be on Zoom, will be led by returning leader Holly Marihugh. The series is sponsored by the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library. Priority will go to current residents of Glencoe if the class is oversubscribed.

VIRTUAL PROGRAM / REGISTRATION REQUIRED

About Vanity FairSet in England around the time of the Napoleonic Wars, the novel Vanity Fair is widely considered to be William Makepeace Thackeray’s masterpiece. Main characters Amelia Sedley and Becky Sharp thread the narrative tension by embarking on the major decision for women of the time: whom they select as husbands. Amelia chooses for what she believes to be true love and Becky for social-climbing and money. Becky is clearly the novel’s most complex and intelligent character, a rarity for a female lead in a novel of the era. Surrounded by a myriad of influential men, including George Osborne, William Dobbin, brothers Rawdon and Pitt Crawley, and Joseph Sedley (Amelia’s brother), the two women live out their joint destinies as the book portrays all of the characters’ escapades in war, fortune, career choice, social status, parenthood, death, and of course, love.
