The Old Man and the Sea
Old Santiago (Spencer Tracy), a lifelong fisherman, sets out to sea to ply his trade as he has done all of his life.

On this day he hooks the fish of a lifetime, a marlin that is larger than his skiff. As the creature slowly pulls him out to sea, the old man reminisces about his past, his successes and the high points of his life. Based on the 1952 novel by Ernest Hemingway. (1958 – Not Rated - 86 min)

The Wrong Man: The Final Verdict on the Dr. Sam Sheppard Murder Case
by James Neff
One of the most famous murder cases of the 20th century, the Sheppard case was the inspiration for “The Fugitive.” The brutal murder of Marilyn Sheppard in a Cleveland suburb in 1954 led to the wrongful conviction and imprisonment of her husband. Drawing on a decade of research and access to crime-scene evidence, an investigative journalist demonstrates conclusively that Sam Sheppard did not kill his wife and points to the man actually responsible for the killing.

Join us in reading and discussing the 2016 Fayette on the Page: One Book, One Community selection. Published in 1968, "True Grit" tells the fictional story of Mattie Ross, a strong, self-reliant 14-year-old determined to see the murder of her father avenged. The action of the novel occurs sometime in the 1870s, in the wild, untamed frontier of Arkansas and the Indian Territory that then lay to the west. The narrator of the tale is an older, grownup Mattie, looking back on the adventures of her youth from a mature perspective. The intrepid girl, who neither suffers fools gladly nor takes “no” for an answer, goes looking for a U.S. Marshal with “true grit” to accompany her into Indian Territory in pursuit of Tom Chaney, the man who killed her father. She finds Rooster Cogburn: one-eyed, hard-drinking, and said to be afflicted with neither mercy nor fear. Together, along with an ostentatious Texas Ranger named LaBoeuf, they journey into the frontier—not only of the Old West, but of the human spirit. Vengeance, it turns out, certainly has its rewards ... but it also exacts a price.
