Baylor University Film and Digital Media will host a showing of the 1978 film "The Whole Shootin' Match" from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday, April 14, in Room 101 of Castellaw Communications Center on the Baylor campus.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is the third film screening in the spring film series hosted by the Film and Digital Media division of the Baylor department of communication studies.

"The Whole Shootin' Match" was Texan filmmaker Eagle Pennell's first feature, which Robert Redford credits as the reason he started the Sundance Institute. The film details the tragi-comic struggle of two small-time schemers, Loyd (Lou Perryman) and Frank (Sonny Carl Davis), as they desperately try to land their big break.

The film series will continue at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 19, in Room 101 of the Castellaw Communications Center with David Lowery's "St. Nick."

Castellaw Communications Center is at 219 Baylor Ave.
