    Date with the Duke: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)

    Date with the Duke: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)

    Details

    When Senator Ransom Stoddard (James Stewart) returns home to Shinbone for the funeral of Tom Doniphon (John Wayne), he recounts to a local newspaper editor the story behind it all. He had come to town many years before, a lawyer by profession. The stage was robbed on its way in by the local ruffian, Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin), and Stoddard has nothing to his name left save a few law books. He gets a job in the kitchen at the Ericson’s restaurant and there meets his future wife. The territory is vying for statehood and Stoddard is selected as a representative over Valance, who continues terrorizing the town. When he destroys the local newspaper office and attacks the editor, Stoddard calls him out, though the conclusion is not quite as straightforward as legend would have it. $55 per person; $50 per Museum member. Reservations required by March 1. Click Here to Register.
