One Man's Hero - poster

"One Man's Hero" is a deeply felt and engrossing period epic that not only presents the US-Mexican War of 1846-1848, in which Mexico lost more than half its territory to the U.S., from the losers' point of view, but also spotlights the heroic role in Mexico's defense played by the San Patricios, Irish immigrant deserters from the American Army who cast their lot with the Mexicans.

After watching the classic adventures made by John Ford, Michael Curtiz, George Stevens, David Lean and the rest, people often complain, "They don't make 'em like that anymore." Well, apparently they still do.

Seating is limited, so please arrive early. $10 at the door.
