The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) is a classic Western co-starring two acting legends, James Stewart and John Wayne, and directed by four-time Oscar-winner John Ford. Stewart plays Ransom Stoddard, a prominent United States senator who takes a trip to the small Wild West town of Shinbone to attend the funeral of a penniless local man, Tom Doniphon (John Wayne). The Senator is cornered by a journalist who wants to know why a high-profile politician has come to Shinbone to bury a nonentity. In flashback, we learn of Stoddard's days as a young man and of the struggle of Stoddard and his friend Doniphon against a cruel criminal named Liberty Valance. Stoddard's fame began when he survived a gunfight to the death against Valance - but what really happened that night so long ago?
