Brown Bag Lunch Series: Henry M. Wantland’s Eye on Central OK
National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum – Noon – 1:00 p.m. S.B. “Burk” Burnett Board Room By examining Henry Wantland’s work, we see that he excels at capturing the people and imagery of a newly opened frontier and a particular moment in Western history. In doing so, he memorializes the cultures of central Oklahoma at the turn of the 20th century. Wantland depended on photography as his livelihood, but in the process he saw into a place and time that hardly lives in anyone’s mind any longer. Because of that, he is not only a Western photographer but also a true frontier primary historian. Join Sara Jane Richter, Ph. D., Dean, School of Liberal Arts, Professor of English, Oklahoma Panhandle State University, as she discusses Henry Wantland’s photographs. Bring your lunch or purchase one at The Museum Grill. Reservations are not required. Free admission to the Board Room and The Museum Grill.

Strong and Sassy Women in the West
National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum – September 28 – November 2 Strong and Sassy Women in the West [OLLI-OSU afternoon class] 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. Dub and Mozelle Richardson Theater Though Western movies have primarily been a male-dominated genre, following World War II Hollywood supported many strong female roles. Previously cast as call girls, damsels in distress, or left behind to just be “lovely,” women began to be portrayed as everything from hard-nosed saloon owners to outlaws or cattle queens. In this series, guest curator Luann Sewell Waters, a Western historian, introduces films made after World War II where women take center stage. This program is offered in conjunction with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Oklahoma State University. Register online at https://education.okstate.edu/olli or by calling (405) 765-8933. September 28 Westward the Women (1951) Unusual for its time with the pioneer women as the focus of the movie, there was no “weaker sex” depicted here. To find husbands, the women survive a flood, desert conditions, Indian attack, and mountainous terrain on their trek by wagon train from Chicago to California. Denise Darcel, Robert Taylor, and Hope Emerson star in this intriguing Western. 118 min. NR, suggested for ages 10+. October 5 Forty Guns (1957) A magnificent B-Western shot in a little more than a week, Sam Fuller’s punchy combination of crazy vulgarities and keen psychological insight stars Barbara Stanwyck as Jessica Drummond, a Catherine the Great of the Arizona range, who reigns over her territory with the help of a whip and 40 hired guns. Drummond intrigues U.S. Marshal and former professional killer Griff Bonnell (Barry Sullivan), and she is tickled by him. The balance of power seesaws between them as the body count piles up. 119 min. NR – suggested for ages 18+. October 12 The Spoilers (1942) Marlene Dietrich looks after her miner friends who frequent her saloon in Alaska. She is on the side of John Wayne (who has third billing in this movie) and his partner, Harry Carey, who get swindled out of a mine claim by Randolph Scott. Who will be the winner is decided by one of the best fist fights on film. This story has been filmed five times, and this is version number four. 88 min. NR – suggested for ages 12+. October 19 Johnny Guitar (1954) A very unconventional Western with lots of symbolism, a political message, and complicated but strong women played by Joan Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge. Sterling Hayden and Scott Brady are part of a love triangle – or two. The all-star cast also includes Earnest Borgnine, John Carradine, and Ward Bond. Directed by Nicholas Ray. 110 min. NR – suggested for ages 14+. October 26 Unsinkable Molly Brown (1964) Yes, Westerns can also be musicals – do not forget Annie Get Your Gun (Betty Hutton) and Calamity Jane (Doris Day). Based on a true rags-to-riches story, it is a fun romp from Colorado to Europe and back – by way of the Titanic! Starring Debbie Reynolds and Harve Presnell. 128 min. NR. November 2 Nobody’s Girls – Five Women of the West (1995) A PBS documentary, the true stories of extraordinary women of diverse cultures who led lives of political activism to prostitution and triumphed over hardships to leave their mark. Starring Cloris Leachman, Tantoo Cardinal, Esther Rolle, Bai Ling, and Angela Alvarado. 90 min. NR.
