CBS Film Series presents Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles The film takes a look at the story behind one of Broadway’s famous musicals, Fiddler on The Roof. How did it originate? Why is it still beloved and relevant today? In 1964, at a time when America was still mourning for JFK, when the Vietnam War was beginning to haunt the American psyche, and when the world was on the verge of a massive counter-cultural revolution, Fiddler on the Roof opened to massive audiences. It held the record for the longest running musical for almost 10 years, won 9 Tony Awards, and spawned five Broadway revivals. The show is still performed in schools and theaters around the world. Why? How did this come to be? The film features Lin-Manuel Miranda: Creator of “Hamilton” and Sheldon Harnick: Lyrist and co-creator of Fiddler on the Roof.

Screening of The Shootist (1976) @ The Autry
Jan 14 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Throughout 2019, audience members voted for their favorite Western. Their selection featuring John Wayne’s final role is a cinematic love letter to the Western, even as the genre was fading from the neighborhood movie house. Adapted from Glendon Swarthout’s novel, The Shootist reflects on the past, while acknowledging the coming of a new West. When the film was released in 1976, Variety summed it up by stating, “The Shootist is simply beautiful and beautifully simple.” Introduced by Courtney Joyner, former film editor for True West magazine and co-author of Western Portraits: Unsung Heroes and Villains of the Silver Screen. Directed by Don Siegel | Starring John Wayne, Lauren Bacall, and Ron Howard
