Movies Under the Stars at the LBJ Ranch "Support Your Local Gunfighter"


A great way to enjoy timeless classics while experiencing a fun-filled night on the LBJ Ranch - just like friends of the Johnsons experienced in the 60s and 70s. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and refreshments. Parking will be on the airstrip taxiway adjacent to the movie site. Well-behaved and leashed pets are welcome. The movie will start at dusk.

The featured film this month is "Support Your Local Gunfighter". When traveling con man Latigo Smith (James Garner) drifts into a small Western town, he decides to take advantage of a local rivalry between gold-mining factions. Recruiting the shifty Jug May (Jack Elam) to pose as a notorious gunfighter, Smith sets his scheme in motion, while also taking time to romance the lovely Patience Barton (Suzanne Pleshette). However, after his ruse is uncovered, Smith incurs the wrath of the real hired gun, among others, leading to a big shoot-out.
