"After I'd seen The Searchers a few times, it was completely fixed in my mind. The film was such a seminal and primal experience that I was absolutely convinced I had dreamed it, which was just right, because that's in keeping with the movie. It almost should be dreamed." - John Milius. Have you ever passed up an opportunity to be involved with something great and kicked yourself for not doing it? If you miss this one, you may find yourself with a long-lasting bruise. In 1996, nearly twenty reels of out-takes from John Ford's classic, The Searchers, were discovered in the archives of Warner Bros. The footage had not been touched since editing of the film wrapped in 1955. Director Nick Redman and producer Brian Jamieson have fashioned the footage into a "living" diary of a legend in the making, and special guests, director Nick Redman, actor Patrick Wayne (son of John Wayne), and award-winning writer John Milius (Apocalypse Now) will appear for an inspiring, warm and personal look at the life of mavericks John Ford and John Wayne and the film that many film aficionados have named the best western of all-time-The Searchers. The collaboration between John Ford and John Wayne produced many of the greatest American films. A Turning of the Earth is a moving portrayal of Ford and Wayne working on their finest moment, The Searchers. After a screening of A Turning of the Earth, Wayne, Milius, and Redman will discuss the wonderful lives of Ford and Wayne in further depth. Trust us, after viewing A Turning of the Earth, our selection team had to see The Searchers again the very next day. We know you will feel the same. --Mike Rabehl
