Cathedral Arts Live Presents Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes
Cathedral Arts Live kicks off the second half of our 2017-2018 season with indie-folk powerhouse Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes on January 26th at 7:00 p.m.
About the Performers
Since their founding in 2011, Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes have found success over the airwaves and in front of audiences, gathering rave reviews for their 2016 Welcoming the Flood.
Dubbed “wizards” and “musical scamps”, they deftly adapt their big, catchy, complex sound from festival stages to listening rooms.
With their infectious love of music, lyrical imagery, and Scott’s unconquerable voice soaring above the rich counterpoint laid down by Kirk Siee, Matt Laurita, Chris Kelly, Mike Bell, and Skyler Bode, the band sets toes tapping and imaginations humming everywhere they go.

The Caine Mutiny - part of Shadows of the Blacklist On Screen
“The Caine Mutiny” Starring Humphrey Bogart, Van Johnson, Fred MacMurray, Jose Ferrer, Robert Francis. Directed by Edward Dmytryk. 1954, 125mins, Color. Screened in 35mm.

$8 Adults / $6 Seniors & Kids

“The Caine Mutiny”, adapted from Herman Wouk’s best-selling novel, is an intense and compelling rumination on the often uncomfortable mix of responsibility, power, stress, ego, character and, ultimately, humanity played out in the setting of military duty, regulation and honor.



Humphrey Bogart is Lt. Comdr. Philip Francis Queeg, the newly assigned commander of the destroyer U.S.S. Caine during WW II. He’s a tough, no-nonsense officer who takes it has his job to run as tight a ship as possible, engendering resentment from some of the men and several of his officers. But difficult years of service for too long have taken their toll on Queeg, causing him to harbor insecurities about his command, his career and himself, and this begins to manifest itself in spells of temper over small details and other apparent aberrations in his thinking and behavior. Fred MacMurray is a glib-tongued and manipulative communications officer who begins making suggestions to the ship's well-meaning but overburdened first officer, played by Van Johnson, that Queeg may have mental problems. At first Johnson initially rejects these suggestions and tries to support the captain, but conditions deteriorate to the point where he feel’s compelled to relieve Queeg of command. For this, Johnson and a young ensign who supported the take-over (played by Robert Francis) are charged with mutiny. Enter Jose Ferrer, a Naval Lieutenant and lawyer, who reluctantly agrees to defend the two men.



That such a story could make a riveting movie, taking in the second highest box office that year and remaining a well-known and admired work all these years later, is largely due to the extraordinary performances of all it’s key players. Most notable of all is Bogart, who throughout his career showed he was skilled not only at playing good guy or bad guy, but also intriguing and even startling mixes of the two. Here he gave one of his finest late-career performances, calling up a riveting mixture of bravado, fear, and irrationality, and adding little neurotic affects that make him truly startling to watch. MacMurray gave a pitch-perfect performance of smooth-talking treachery that was far removed from his character on “My Three Sons”; Johnson was remarkably good in a kind of character that was not his norm; and Ferrer’s mix of intensity and subtlety made the pivotal role of the defense attorney fully believable.



The film’s director, Edward Dmytryk had been Blacklisted for being one of a group of liberal or left-leaning film makers who refused to “name names” when called to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Dmytryk, along with others, was even jailed for contempt of Congress. But he eventually had a change of heart, and cooperated with the House Committee. After that, independent producer Stanley Kramer effectively took Dmytryk off the Blacklist by hiring him first for several small projects, and then to direct “The Caine Mutiny”. But interesting, Bogart is also linked to the Blacklist too. Initially he and wife Lauren Bacall were among the most prominent members of a group of stars, directors and screenwriters who spoke out against the House Un-American Affairs Committee for conducting a witch-hunt. But Bogart was privately warned that he was jeopardizing his career, and eventually backed away from a public stand against the House Committee.
