High Noon 

Four-time Academy Award-winning Western High Noon is the film most requested for White House screenings by sitting U.S. presidents. Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush all listed it among their favorite films, and superfan Bill Clinton even talks about his love for the movie on the special features of the collector's edition DVD release. The epitome of American individualism and self-reliance, Gary Cooper stars as Will Kane, a retired marshal newly married to pacifist Quaker Amy Fowler (Grace Kelly). Kane must face a vengeful killer alone when the townspeople refuse to lend a hand. The film screens at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (June 13 and 14) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or www.webster.edu/film-series) as part of Webster Film Series Gateway to the Western program. Lee Van Cleef, Lon Chaney Jr., Harry Morgan and Lloyd Bridges also star. Admission is $4 to $6.
Sat., June 13, 7:30 p.m.; Sun., June 14, 7:30 p.m., 2015
