Review by Dominic

Note: First-time viewers are advised that the following makes details of the film’s plot explicit.

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.

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)

"Fred Zinnemann's classic Western 'High Noon' is a film that lends itself to many interpretations and has had a variety of different ideologies imposed upon it over the decades since its original release. Most famously though, 'High Noon' is seen as an allegory against McCarthyism, an element that crept into the script when its writer Carl Foreman found himself being called to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee due to his former links to the Communist party.
