A Date with the Duke - Holiday Edition

December 6, 2017

5:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Dub and Mozelle Richardson Theater

John Wayne

Guests can whet their appetites with a cash bar and scrumptious buffet prepared by The Petroleum Club of Oklahoma City while watching a special film screening of 3 Godfathers (1948). Arguably one of John Wayne’s best roles, this poignant story of redemption takes place on Christmas Eve when three men rob a bank in Arizona and make their escape route through the desert. Near a dry waterhole they come upon a woman about to give birth, and one of the men helps deliver the baby. The dying mother elicits a promise from the three bank robbers to save her child. Wayne plays an outlaw with a heart of gold as the three men first commit a criminal act and then sacrifice to spare a stranger’s life. Their crime, in a sense, saves the baby, and the baby, in return, saves their souls.
