September 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

the-event-is-free-with-museum-general-admission

Ever wonder what it was like to have a Hollywood legend tuck you in at night? Join the Briscoe as John Wayne’s daughter, Aissa Wayne, shares memories of her father with guest curator Andrew Patrick Nelson. Then take advantage of the last chance to see the Briscoe’s blockbuster Still in the Saddle: A New History of Hollywood Westerns exhibit and a unique opportunity for a guided tour with Nelson and Aissa Wayne. The program begins at 2 p.m. with a Q&A, followed by the guided tours at 3 p.m., on Saturday, September 4.

Wayne, daughter of John and Pilar Wayne, appeared in four of her father’s films as a child, “The Alamo”, “The Comancheros”, “McClintock” and “Donavon’s Reef”, as she regularly traveled to her father’s movie sets during his career. She authored a memoir of her life with the Duke, “John Wayne, My Father” and is a retired criminal and family law attorney. She lives in Los Angeles, with her husband Scott Conrad, who won the Oscar for Best Film Editing on the hit movie, “Rocky”.

From an actual red carpet, velvet ropes, and the unmistakable smell of popcorn to film clips rolling throughout the exhibition, the Briscoe’s summer exhibition, Still in the Saddle, on view through September 6, brilliantly showcases that the Hollywood Western is alive and well. Nelson, the guest curator of Still in the Saddle, is a historian of American cinema and culture, film programmer, museum curator and media commentator, as well as the Chair of the Department of Film and Media Arts and Associate Professor of Film Studies at the University of Utah, and the author and editor of numerous books and essays on Western cinema.
