After the great success of High Noon, the 41st Torino Film Festival dedicates a tribute to John Wayne

After last year’s success, TFF is reintroducing its High Noon program, dedicated to the American Western, with a tribute to John Wayne, the greatest Western actor of all time, on the 60th anniversary of the release of his film Donovan’s Reef (The Three of the Southern Cross), the film that best sums up the perfect partnership between Wayne and John Ford, his director of choice.

Then again, as Jean-Luc Godard stated, “How can I hate John Wayne upholding Goldwater and yet love him tenderly when abruptly he takes Natalie Wood into his arms in the last reel of The Searchers?”

The movies will be presented, as usual, each day at noon (12) and introduced by experts and fans of the genre.
