"Bad Day at Black Rock" is a riveting suspense thriller with several memorable performances from a first rate cast. Spencer Tracy (in one of his best roles) excels as John J. MacReedy who is in Black Rock to take a medal to the father of one of his wartime colleagues now that the war is over.

Description: It's 1945, a couple of weeks after the official end of the war. For the first time in four years, the streamliner stops in the small American western desert town of Black Rock, and off the train steps John J. Macreedy. Wearing a suit, he's a middle aged man with a lame left arm who has never been to Black Rock. Without even knowing who he is or what his story is, the townsfolk are suspicious of Macreedy. They learn that he is only in town for 24 hours when the streamliner will pick him up the next day to take him to Los Angeles, where he will "restart" his life.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2017 (30 movies items)

" VUDU- 1hr. 21min. First Viewing Bad Day at Black Rock would've easily won the month if Singin' in the Rain hadn't. An engaging suspense/mystery film that handles racism in a way that, sadly, still feels prescient even today. Tracy leads the film with aplomb, controlling every seen, despite heavy aid by an excellent supporting cast. With the help of some superb storytelling, the film takes classic status. Monthly Wesley AwardBest Adapted Screenplay- Millard Kaufman "

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: July (12 movies items)

"July 7 "Man, they look woebegone and far away." "Oh, I'll only be here twenty-four hours." "In a place like this, it could be a lifetime." This was a pretty fun movie. It's an entertaining suspense type film with a great performance from Spencer Tracy. Didn't quite cross the line of greatness for me, but I still really enjoyed it and I'd probably add it to my DVD collection someday. "
