Our 'The Western' program at the Australian Cinémathèque, GOMA offers a rare opportunity to see these films presented on the big screen as they were intended, and features many 35mm prints sourced from film archives around the world and screened in one of Australia’s last 35mm film venues.

George Stevens infuses the western genre with mythic grandeur in this timeless classic. Alan Ladd is at his most iconic as the title character, an ex-gunfighter forced out of retirement when a family of homesteaders comes under attack by a vicious rancher's hired guns. Jack Palance is one of the most threatening villains in movie history, and the film itself is both a summing up of the western genre and a sign of things to come.

Unforgiven marked Clint Eastwood's return to the genre that had made him a star. Eastwood plays a pig-farming ex-gunfighter who is lured out of retirement by the chance to earn some much needed money for his two children. While a moral ambiguity pervades the film, Unforgiven became an unprecedented critical and box-office success, earning an Oscar for Hackman's chilling performance and a pair for Eastwood as director and producer of this modern masterpiece.
