The Shootist
1976 Western – directed by Don Siegel, 100 min PG

Dying gunfighter J.B. Books spends his last days looking for a way to die with a minimum of pain and a maximum of dignity. This, John Wayne’s last movie, is a dignified, thoughtful Western, heartbreakingly close to the Duke’s actual situation and very cunning in its use of Wayne’s screen persona to fill in the background of the character he plays here.
