Movies at the Museum – Guns of Fort Petticoat

Orange Icon Lizard - Special Event Date(s): 07/04/2017     Time: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The Cool Classic Western Movie this week  is the 1957 Classic Guns of Fort Petticoat, starring Audie Murphy and Jeanette Nolan.

Lt. Frank Hewitt deserts the Union Army to warn former Texas neighbors of impending Indian attacks triggered by an Army massacre. He overcomes initial distrust and convinces the homesteaders (all women whose men are away fighting in the Confederate Army) to take refuge in an abandoned mission. He trains them to fight and shoot in anticipation of the attack. The surrounded, and outnumbered, defenders prepare for the final assault.


The movie is preceded by an episode of the one-half hour television show The Cisco Kid   starring Duncan Renaldo. The Cisco Kid and his sidekick Pancho, played by Leo Carillo, follow in the footsteps of The Lone Ranger by fighting injustice in the Old West.

Movies at the the Museum are free to the public, with donations gratefully accepted, and will be shown in the air-conditioned Elvis Chapel. Refreshments are available in Charlie’s General Store, located in the Apacheland Barn. Visitors are encouraged to come early as seating in the Chapel is limited.
