"The Searchers" to Ride into the Academy June 23rd

Posted on Tuesday, June 6th, 2006. Last Updated on Tuesday, June 6th, 2006 4:17 PM by Scott Jentsch

Beverly Hills, CA — In a special 50th anniversary screening, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Gold Standard Series will present a newly remastered and restored digital version of “The Searchers” (1956), a John Ford film starring John Wayne, on Friday, June 23, at 8 p.m. at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. The evening will be hosted by film critic and commentator Pete Hammond. “The Searchers,” set in the years following the Civil War, was shot on location in Monument Valley (as well as in Canada, California and Colorado) by three-time Oscar®-winning cinematographer Winton C. Hoch, directed by four-time Academy Award® winner Ford, and scored by two-time Oscar winner Max Steiner. Ex-Confederate soldier Ethan Edwards, portrayed by Wayne, spends five years searching for his young niece Debbie (Natalie Wood), who was captured by the Comanches in a raid in which her family was massacred. Accompanied by his half-Indian nephew, Martin (Jeffrey Hunter), Ethan is forced to examine his own prejudices as his relentless pursuit leads him to Debbie, only to learn that she has assimilated with her captors. This digital version has been completely remastered and restored from the original VistaVision elements by Warner Bros. Tickets to “The Searchers” are $5 for the general public and $3 for Academy members. Doors open at 7 p.m. The Samuel Goldwyn Theater is located at 8949 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Free parking is provided in the garages located at 8920 and 9025 Wilshire Boulevard. For additional information, call (310) 247-3600.
