The Shooting

  • Saturday January 24, 2015 2:00 PM

The Shooting (Monte Hellman, 1966) After working on Back Door to Hell and Flight to Fury, Monte Hellman’s relationship with Roger Corman and Jack Nicholson enabled him to direct the celebrated, genre-defying western The Shooting. Starring Warren Oates, Will Hutchins, and Jack Nicholson, and written by Carole Eastman, The Shooting pushed the western genre into more heady territory and defined the celebrated director’s early career. 

This ArthouseFW series explores the direct influence of B-movie master and iconic independent producer Roger Corman on a younger generation of filmmakers whose work would carry on Corman’s innovative spirit to independent film and Hollywood studios alike. The series follows these “students” through the decades, as they adapt Corman’s pioneering sense of filmmaking into definitive careers of their own. Admission is $7; $5 for Reel People and Lone Star Film Society members. Advance purchase is available at
