Canyon Passage (1946)

When: Sun., Nov. 16, 3 p.m. 2014

Canyon Passage is Jacques Tourneur’s restrained gem of a Western set in Oregon in the 1850s. In the middle of the intertwining dramas involving gambling, homesteading, a town trouble-maker (played particularly well by Ward Bond) and a Native American uprising, is a romantic love triangle between a merchant, his business partner, and the woman they love. To help keep all of the sub-plots connected and moving forward is Hoagy Carmichael, who plays a shopkeeper and singing philosopher who shares a number of songs, including “Ole Buttermilk Sky,” for which he was nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Original Song
