  1. "Abilene Town" FILM - Ike Book TALK series

    July 8, 2018, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    This 1946 film is set during the years following the Civil War, when the town of Abilene, Kansas, is on the brink of an explosive confrontation. A line has been drawn down the center of the town where the homesteaders and the cattlemen have come to a very uneasy truce. The delicate peace is inadvertantly shattered when a group of new homesteaders lay down their stakes on the cattlemen's side of town, upsetting the delicate balance that had existed thus far and sparking an all-out war between the farmers, who want the land tamed and property lines drawn, and the cowboys, who want the prairies to be open for their cattle to roam. "Abilene Town" stars Randolph Scott, Ann Dvorak, Lloyd Bridges, Rhonda Fleming and Edgar Buchanan. Dwight Eisenhower was a big fan of western novels and movies. This film is a companion to the Ike Book TALK discussion of "Trail Town" on July 9.
