One City, One Story: 
What Is a Western Film


 Carl Kozlowski, film critic and 
arts editor for the Pasadena 
Weekly, will host two classic 
western movies this week in the 
Donald R. Wright Auditorium 
at Pasadena Central Library.

 The films will be shown in 
conjunction with the City of 
Pasadena’s annual One City, 
One Story community reading 
celebration. This year’s novel, 
written by Hernán Diaz, is “In 
the Distance,” a Pulitzer Prize 
finalist about a Swedish boy in 
the Old West.

 Kozlowski will introduce the 
films, which will be followed 
by a Q&A with the audience. 
The evenings also will include 
western singalongs led by 
country-Americana band 

· “Shane” (1953, NR) 
directed by George Stevens 
and starring Alan Ladd, Jean 
Arthur and Van Heflin will be 
shown Thursday, March 28, 
at 6 p.m. A mysterious drifter 
rides into a community of 
homesteaders in Wyoming 
Territory where he works for a 
farming family, is idolized by a 
young boy and faces down the 
minions of a land baron who 
is trying to steal properties 
from landowners through 
intimidation and violence. With 
its vast landscapes and close-
up character studies, the film 
earned the Academy Award for 
Best Cinematography.

· “How the West Was Won” 
(1962, PG) directed by John 
Ford, Henry Hathaway and 
George Marshall, narrated by 
Spencer Tracy and featuring 
a 24-member all-star cast 
including James Stewart, 
Gregory Peck and Henry Fonda 
will be shown Saturday, March 
30, at 2 p.m. The epic film 
chronicles, in five sequences, 
the great western expansion 
from 1839 to 1889 as settlers 
make the difficult and often 
dangerous trek from the east 
and Midwest to put down 
roots in California. The film 
won Academy Awards for Best 
Screenplay, Best Film Editing 
and Best Sound.

 “Westerns are a uniquely 
American film genre filled 
with heroism and derring-do. 
‘Shane’ and ‘How the West 
Was Won’ go the extra mile 
to be amazing works of art as 
well as hugely entertaining,” 
said Kozlowski. “I enjoy giving 
people extra insights into the 
making of each film, and it’s 
fantastic to have a free mini-
concert of great cowboy music 
before the show as well.”

dedicate time and/or financial 
resources to (in addition to their

and turning them into fully planned 
initiatives, City Council is interested 
in hearing which initiative ideas 
community members think are the 
most important.
