The Wild West Rides Again: "The Searchers"
John Wayne plays Ethan Edwards, a former Confederate soldier who returns to his brother Aaron's frontier cabin three years after the end of the Civil War. Ethan still has his rebel uniform and weapons, a large stash of Yankee gold, and no explanations as to where he's been since Lee's surrender. A loner not comfortable in the bosom of his family, Ethan also harbors a bitter hatred of Indians (though he knows their lore and language well) and trusts no one but himself. Ethan and Martin Pawley (Jeffrey Hunter), Aaron's adopted son, join a makeshift band of Texas Rangers fending off an assault by renegade Comanches. Before they can run off the Indians, several homes are attacked, and Ethan returns to discover his brother and sister-in-law dead and their two daughters kidnapped. While they soon learn that one of the girls is dead, the other, Debbie, is still alive, and with obsessive determination, Ethan and Martin spend the next five years in a relentless search for Debbie -- and for Scar (Henry Brandon), the fearsome Comanche chief who abducted her. But while Martin wants to save his sister and bring her home, Ethan seems primarily motivated by his hatred of the Comanches; it's hard to say if he wants to rescue Debbie or murder the girl who has lived with Indians too long to be considered "white." John Wayne gives perhaps his finest performance in a role that predated screen antiheroes of the 1970s; by the film's conclusion, his single-minded obsession seems less like heroism and more like madness. Wayne bravely refuses to soft-pedal Ethan's ugly side, and the result is a remarkable portrait of a man incapable of answering to anyone but himself, who ultimately has more in common with his despised Indians than with his more "civilized" brethren. Popcorn provided by Friends of the Coupeville Library. Not Rated. 119 minutes. 1956.

Seriously Funny: Humor, Film, and Philosophy
Film holds tremendous power to shape the thoughts of its audience, presenting stories and viewpoints ranging from the deeply philosophic to the comedic. What happens when you combine the two concepts into one discussion about film? In this unique take on philosophy, film, and comedy, professor Mike VanQuickenborne shares film clips to start a conversation exploring the issues raised by each of these films. Presented by Humanities Washington and the Friends of the Langley Library. <br /><br />Mike VanQuickenborne is a tenured philosophy instructor at Everett Community College, and has taught philosophy at a variety of colleges on both sides of the Cascade crest. Along with a slate of introductory philosophy courses, he has taught “Philosophy in the Cinema” since 2000. In 2008 with the help of a grant from Humanities Washington, he organized the world’s first philosophical film festival, “Philosophy in the Dark.” He is a graduate of St. Olaf College, earned a Master of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and did graduate coursework at Purdue University.<br />
