Music: The House of Mercy Band
See the light, sisters and brothers! Join us for the revelatory sounds of the resident band for the rockin’ House of Mercy Church in St. Paul. This seven-member group (led by sculptor-musician Chris Larson) performs a hymnodically diverse blend of Americana, roots, and old-time gospel songs in the time-honored vein of Fanny Crosby, Hank Williams, the Louvin Brothers, Martin Luther, Johnny Cash, and the Carter Family.
Movie: The Lusty Men
Directed by Nicholas Ray
Set on the rodeo circuit, this unique western centers on the perils of greed when former rodeo star Jeff McCloud (Robert Mitchum) manages a talented young rider named Wes (Arthur Kennedy). At first, Wes is eager to earn just enough money to buy a farm with his wife, Louise (Susan Hayward) and get out before he injures himself riding bulls. After quick winnings, the lure of fast money and even faster women could get the better of him. 1952, U.S., BW, 16mm, 113 minutes.
