Venue

As we continue our celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail, watch how life on the cattle trail was depicted by Hollywood in four movies. The third movie in our series is the 1955 movie The Far Country. This movie stars James Stewart, John McIntire, Ruth Roman, and Walter Brennan. Set in the Yukon, Stewart and his friends are driving cattle to market from Wyoming to Canada, where the boom towns pay top dollar for beef. When they arrive in Skagway, the corrupt sheriff of the town steals the cattle and Stewart and his friends are forced to fight for the herd. Together with the female saloon keeper of another town, they find themselves up against an evil they were not prepared for. (Runtime: 96 minutes)
