For the first time in four decades, the Silent Movie Theatre will be screening the landmark 1923 epic "The Covered Wagon" on Wednesday as part of a weeklong celebration of vintage westerns. Produced by Jesse L. Lasky and directed by James Cruze, "The Covered Wagon" was the most lavish western of its day. The granddaddy of wagon train adventures, the sagebrush saga was a staple at the revival movie theater throughout the '40s until the mid-1950s.
