So, you may have heard that we are having a massive party in the backyard in Sunday. You heard about that, right? Well, you should come! The details about that wing-ding are right here:

After that, boy oh boy, do we have a fun flick for y'all!

This week we bring you the very first western that Clint Eastwood directed, HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER. Sometimes overlooked in favor of the more-popular Man With No Name trilogy (Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and the Good the Bad, and the Ugly), HPD is a weird one. Most surprisingly, it's kind of an "avenging ghost" story. Some feel that it is derivative and paranoid, but I think it's goddamn fantastic! If you haven't seen this film, and you are a fan of westerns, I suggest you show up for this one.

Oh, and on a side note, John Wayne DETESTED this film. Anyways...

High Plains Drifter is a 1973 American supernatural western film produced by Robert Daley for Malpaso Company and Universal Studios, directed by and starring Clint Eastwood, and written by Ernest Tidyman (who also wrote the novelization). Eastwood plays an enigmatic wraith, who metes out justice in a corrupt frontier mining town, where he arrives as a stranger.[3] The film was influenced by the work of Eastwood's two major collaborators, film directors Sergio Leone and Don Siegel.[4]

The film was shot on location on the shores of Mono Lake, California. Dee Barton wrote the eerie film score. The film was critically acclaimed at the time of its initial release and remains popular today, holding a score of 96% at the review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes.

Doors will be open all day, so come early for the show and stay later for the film!


As always, the movies at Fond Object are free, all ages, critter friendly, and B.Y.O.B. Entrance on Riverside Drive through the big wooden gate that says IN.
