For some, this is the definitive American western. Gary Cooper is the marshal who fights alone for upholding the law when the entire town is paralyzed with fear. Stark settings and shadows heighten the suspense, as does the illusion of much of the film playing out in "real time," with frequent shots of clocks to emphasize the impending showdown. The film is frequently read as a parable of the McCarthy era, as screenwriter Carl Foreman was blacklisted shortly after completing the script. With Grace Kelly, Lloyd Bridges, Lon Chaney and Fred Zinnemann---USA---1952---84 mins.
