Jeff Berg, who was so integral to the Fountain Theatre in Mesilla, may not live there anymore, but he'll be making a couple of area appearances this week.
The New Mexico film historian, now based in Santa Fe, will premiere "Made in New Mexico Westerns: The Last Shootout," at 7 p.m. Nov. 8 at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum, 4100 Dripping Springs, in Las Cruces.
It's the last in a series of four anthologies of Westerns at least partially shot in the Land of Enchantment and will include footage of Mary Pickford from a 1912 "oddity," as he put it, as well as clips featuring Gregory Peck, Jerry Lewis and Burt Lancaster.
Berg will discuss each of the 15 clips during the presentation. Admission is a $2 donation at the door.
He'll show and discuss the third installment of the series at 2 p.m. Nov. 10 at the Carlsbad Art Museum, 418 W. Fox.
He says he may be back at the Fountain in January or February to present one of his "Made in NM" films.
The theater, by the way, has booked a recently made-in-NM film, "Bless Me, Ultima," to run Nov. 9-15. It had a test-screening in El Paso.
