B Movies and Bad History: Rodeo Moo-vies

September 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm - Free

Hear behind-the-scenes stories and learn the facts and fiction portrayed on-screen in a selection of Rodeo Moo-vie clips.

Program Details

Is there a more classic image of a “Texan” than a cowboy riding a bucking bronc or roping a stray calf? This archetype has been featured in movies repeatedly over the years, but what do these portrayals tell us about real Texans? In conjunction with Rodeo! The Exhibition, lasso your friends and join us for an exploration of the best and worst of rodeo movies through clips and conversation with historian Dr. Michael Wise and author and Texana expert, Dr. Don Graham.
