SMC honors the late James Garner with a special Western marathon on Saturday, September 6, at 11 a.m. ET. The star-studded event boasts Western hero Randolph Scott in RIDE LONESOME; James Stewart in FOOLS' PARADE and THE MAN FROM LARAMIE; Gregory Peck in MACKENNA'S GOLD; and Kevin Costner in SILVERADO. A pair of Oscar®-nominated films headline the night, as Garner and Sally Field star in the small town dramedy MURPHY'S ROMANCE; then, Garner steps into the spurs of Wyatt Earp to solve a Hollywood murder mystery with Bruce Willis as Tom Mix, in SUNSET.

"Sundays in HD" presents four more visual masterpieces, every week at 7 p.m. ET. The roster features a blend of Academy Award® winners and nominees with Daniel Day-Lewis in Scorsese's Oscar®-winning drama THE AGE OF INNOCENCE (September 7); the Oscar®-nominated WWII submarine epic DAS BOOT (September 14); Warren Beatty is the king of Las Vegas in the Oscar®-winning BUGSY (September 21); and James Garner and Sally Field star in the 1985 nominee MURPHY'S ROMANCE (September 28). DAS BOOT, BUGSY and MURPHY'S ROMANCE were all nominated for Best Cinematography and AGE OF INNOCENCE for Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design which it won.

Saddle up with James Stewart, as SMC celebrates the beloved silver screen icon with a Western double feature on Wednesday, September 10. The night begins at 8 p.m. ET, as Stewart uncovers a cattle baron's plot to arm Apaches in THE MAN FROM LARAMIE. Then, Stewart is convicted killer Mattie Appleyard, whose attempt to start an honest life is foiled by a corrupt sheriff in 1971's FOOL'S PARADE, with Kurt Russell.

And take the stand for a night of "Courtroom Thrills," as part of SMC's "Friday Features" block on September 19, at 10 p.m. ET. Tom Cruise stars as a rookie defense lawyer, in over his head, in A FEW GOOD MEN, with Jack Nicholson, Keifer Sutherland and Kevin Bacon. Then, jury duty turns deadly when a single mother's life is threatened by the mob in THE JUROR, starring Demi Moore and Alec Baldwin.
