Since it is a huge classic, I was really eager to check it out. To be honest, I usually have a hard time to care about those old classic Westerns. Indeed, even though I enjoyed such movies like 'Rio Bravo' or 'Shane', they didn't really blow me away. Fortunately, I liked this one a lot. The point is that it is not only a Western, it is also actually a nail-bitting thriller and, during the whole th... read more

A fun movie with a great song accompanying it. Also, very macho, Will Kane goes it alone because the rest of the town has some excuse to get out of the fight.

I was a little bothered by the preacher's comment. The preacher states, "The commandment is 'Thou shalt not kill,' but we hire men to go do it for us." In reality, the commandment is "Thou shalt not murder," which breaks do... read more

Description: Will Kane (Gary Cooper) is a town marshal. It's his wedding day and his last day as a lawman. He is about to leave town with his new bride to start a new life when some men arrive and tell him that Frank Miller (ian MacDonald), a man he sent to prison some years ago, has just been released and is arriving on the noon train. Kane and any of the townsfolk who remember Miller, know that he's coming to town for one thing: to get Will. Will's friends tell him to leave town, which he does. But Will feels that running away is not a solution and returns, intending to face Miller and his gang. Will tries to find support from among the ... (more)

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"Fred Zinnemann’s western was shot on a shoe-strong budget, and it shows, as the pared-down studio settings and emphasis on close-ups and tight interior shots over ponderous vistas are positively televisual. But in a way, its relative lack of material detail and geographic specificity make it groundbreaking: In High Noon, the western becomes the self-conscious space of allegorical mythos. The basis of Carl Foreman’s story is his own experience refusing to name names to the House Un-American A"
