A Date with the Duke: Rio Grande (1950)

When: Tue., Dec. 15, 5-8 p.m. 2020

Enjoy the third film in John Ford’s “cavalry trilogy.” Lieutenant Colonel Kirby Yorke (John Wayne) heads a cavalry post on the Texas side of the Rio Grande, defending settlers against Apaches launching raids from the Mexican side of the river. When Yorke’s 16-year-old son, Jeff (Claude Jarman Jr.)— whom Yorke hasn’t seen since he was a baby — shows up at the post as one of the new recruits, Yorke treats him more harshly than the others. Things are further complicated when Yorke’s estranged wife, Kathleen (Maureen O’Hara), returns to take her son home. $45 per person; $40 per Museum
