Outfest Downtown 30: Johnny Guitar
Outfest is excited to bring back a monthly screening series in collaboration with Downtown Independent. Outfest's Downtown 30 will feature new and classic films of LGBT interest, including titles not available on DVD. Check back each month to see what film is showcased. We look forward to seeing you downtown at the movies!

Director Nicholas Ray upends any preconceived notions about gender roles of the old West, with a baroque adventure that climaxes with butch Joan Crawford and an even butcher Mercedes McCambridge facing off in one of the screen's most unforgettable gunfights. Whether you read the film as a Freudian Western or a metaphor about McCarthy-era witch hunts and Red-baiting, JOHNNY GUITAR goes over the top and stays there for its entire running time. The extraordinary ensemble cast also includes Sterling Hayden, Ernest Borgnine, Ward Bond, Scott Brady and John Carradine  not to mention a theme song sung by Peggy Lee. (Fun fact: This is the movie that Carmen Maura's character in WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN is overdubbing into Spanish.)

Scr. Philip Yordan, based on the novel by Roy Chanslor; dir. Nicholas Ray. 110 min (1954)
