Bringing together three movies that rely on the land as an integral character in the story, the April–June block of films is guest curated by James D'Arc, curator at BYU Motion Picture Archive and author of When Hollywood Came to Town: The History of Movie-Making in Utah. These films demonstrate why the varied landscapes of Utah became popular as filming locations within the Western genre.

From the famed Will James novel of a drifter cowboy in search of a runaway horse, this seldom-screened Western is accented by David Raksin's lyrical score and Burl Ives's beguiling renditions of great songs. Beautifully filmed in Technicolor in Zion National Park and various Western U.S. locations, Smoky is a well told contemporary story of a man and his love for a horse.
