'Marshall Will Kane' (Gary Cooper) had cleaned up 'Hadleyville' (a small town in New Mexico territory) down the years making it
a safe place to live, he is now set to retire and start a new life in another town with his new-bride 'Amy' (Grace Kelly) as the
ceremony and celebration conclude three riders come into town 'Ben Miller' (Sheb Wooley) , 'Jack Colby' (Lee Van Cleef) and
'Jim Pierce' (Robert J Wilke) they are there to meet the noon train on which is 'Frank Miller' (Ian MacDonald)
'Will' had arrested 'Frank' some five years or so back, the vicious killer had been sentenced for a life-term in jail but had been
released early and is returning to 'Hadleyville' with revenge in mind.
When this news reaches the wedding party, 'Will' and 'Amy's' friends urge them to leave town immediately to start their new-life
together before the train arrives in little over an hours time.
The three that wait for 'Frank Miller' are members of his old gang.
'Will' and 'Amy' set off, however a short way into the journey 'Will' pulls up the carriage, he just can't leave the town open to the
will of 'Frank Miller' and his side-kicks, the new Marshall doesn't arrive until tomorrow.
Back in town 'Will' is confident that he'll be able to raise a posse, he has many friends in town many of whom had stood with him
during troubled times in years gone by.
However, even his deputy 'Harvey Pell' (Lloyd Bridges) throws in his badge upset that he'd not been appointed 'Will's' replacement,
and his so-called friends refuse to join in the fight.Read more ›
I love the human emotional part.
Westerns were everywhere in the 1950s and early 1960s. I became interested again to see the qualities the genre possessed beyond formulaic stereotyping. I also thought this once highly popular genre might still have something to teach about how Americans understood and could still understand themselves and their country.
The best works in the genre take formulaic elements and turn them into something original and creative. The books and films mentioned in the first paragraph of this review do so, and "High Noon" does as well. The film tells the story of Marshall Will Kane (Gary Cooper) who has served a small town. Hadleyville, in the Territory of New Mexico and cleared out its outlaws. Kane has just married Amy Fowler (Grace Kelly) and is about to retire.Read more ›
UK customers please note that this is a region A locked American import and will not play on standard UK and European Blu ray players. A multi-region Blu ray player will be required.
During a decade when the western movie was king, Fred Zinnemann's 1952 classic "High Noon" stood as one of the best the overcrowded genre had to offer which despite it's relatively basic good vs bad premise was much more of a thinking man's horse opera as opposed to a rough and tumble shoot-em up oater. Though ostensibly a western Fred Zinnemann's taught tale of just retired Marshall Will Kane (Garry Cooper) foregoing turning in his tin star for one extra day despite the displeasure of his new wife Amy (Grace Kelly) in order to apprehend a band of vengeful cowboys could be looked upon as more of a gripping psychological thriller steeped in noirish black and white cinematography and underlined by many strong themes of morality.
The narrative couldn't be simpler with Will Kane the softly spoken Marshall of Hadleyville getting word that a notorious local outlaw whom he helped to put away has been granted his freedom and is heading back to town on the noon train with a score to settle.Read more ›
