The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

A FILM BY: John Ford
WRITTEN BY: James Warner Bellah (screenplay), Willis Goldbeck (screenplay)
STARRING: James Stewart, John Wayne, Vera Miles

Senator Ransom Stoddard (James Stewart) returns to the town of Shinbone for the funeral of Tom Doniphon (John Wayne) and recounts the decades-old shooting of outlaw Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin) to two local reporters. John Ford’s only feature in the ’60s shot in black and white, THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE is a film of shadows and light, and more or less the last word on the classic American Western without being a caricature of it.
