True Grit (West of What Series)

Film

Educator, film critic, and writer Melissa Tamminga introduces True Grit (1969) vs. True Grit (2010). In True Grit, Wayne plays grumpy, pot-bellied U.S. marshal "Rooster" Cogburn, hired by 14-year-old Mattie Ross (Kim Darby) to find Tom Chaney (Jeff Corey), who killed her father. The headstrong Mattie could have had her pick of lawmen, but selects the aging Cogburn because she believes he has "true grit". Also heading into Indian territory in search of Chaney is Texas Ranger La Boeuf (Glen Campbell), who wants to collect the reward placed on the fugitive's head for his earlier crimes. Complicating matters are Chaney's scurrilous cronies Ned Pepper (Robert Duvall), Quincy (Jeremy Slate), and Moon (Dennis Hopper), who have no qualms about killing a troublesome teenaged girl like Mattie.

DAVID GILMOUR LIVE AT POMPEII

Film

Presented by 92.9 KISM 45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows, part of his year-long tour in support of his No.1 album ‘Rattle That Lock’. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD. ‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ is an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs, but paramount above all is the astonishing music and stellar performances from an all-star band. The show includes songs from throughout David's career, as well as many Pink Floyd classics, including 'One Of These Days', the only song that was also performed at the band’s 1971 show.

THE DEADLY MANTIS

Film

This is the one in which the "villain" is a huge, carnivorous praying mantis. After the titular insect has attacked several people in a remote Arctic region, Col. Joe Parkham (Craig Stevens) swings into action. Parkham and his associates, Dr. Ned Jackson (William Hopper) and Ned's assistant Margie Blake (Alix Talton), track the predatory mantis as it heads southward to Washington DC (how did it get past customs?) The green monstrosity meets its Waterloo in "Manhattan Tunnel", where it is bombarded with poison gas (a little Raid or Black Flag might have come in handy). Some of the Arctic scenes in The Deadly Mantis were clumsily culled from the 1933 drama SOS Iceberg and a handful of Air Force training films.

TITUS ANDRONICUS (ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY)

Film

The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society. Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society.

YERMA (NATIONAL THEATRE)

Film

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece.

THE SYMBOL OF THE UNCONQUERED / TWO-GUN MAN FROM HARLEM

Film

Professor Michael Johnson - author of "Hoo-Doo Cowboys and Bronze Buckaroos", who brings conceptions of the African American West starting with Oscar Micheaux’s 1920 silent The Symbol of the Unconquered + Herb Jeffries in Two-Gun Man from Harlem. The Symbol of the Unconquered: Directed by Oscar Micheaux and designed especially for black audiences, this silent romance flirts with the notion of miscegenation -- the hatred of inter-racial relations. The trouble begins when a dark-skinned black finds himself avoiding the affections of a light-skinned woman because he thinks she is white. It takes quite a bit of convincing for her to prove him wrong. Two-Gun Man from Harlem:Bob Blake is a ranch foreman falsely accused of killing his boss, John Steele (Tom Southern) after spurning the man's flirtatious wife, Ruth (Mae Turner. Returning from a stay in New York's Harlem, Bob returns West in the guise of the Deacon, a former preacher turned killer and Bob's look-alike.
