Altman’s wonderful western proffers a memorably unglamorous version of the pioneering west; here, the gambler McCabe (Beatty) joins with Cockney madame Miller (Christie) in setting up a superior brothel in a dismal mining community. Trouble is, he has ruthless business rivals... Rain, mud and especially snow become key elements in this far-from-mythic take on American history and heroism.
The screening on Wednesday 20 September will be introduced by Geoff Andrew, Programmer-at-large.
