Widmark, Wayne take on invading Mexican army

PRINCETON – The next Widmark Wednesday movie features Princeton’s own Richard Widmark as an American frontiersman who helps fight Mexican invaders in the 1830s.

The film begins at 6 p.m. (note earlier time) Wednesday at the Princeton Public Library. Admission is free.

In the 1960 drama, Widmark’s character joins characters played by John Wayne and Laurence Harvey to defend a small Texas mission against an advancing Mexican army.

Among the co-stars are Frankie Avalon, Chill Wills, Patrick Wayne, Richard Boone, Ken Curtis and Denver Pyle.

Widmark, a 1932 graduate of Princeton High School, acted in more than 70 movies from 1947 until 1991.
