High Noon

( 11 )

Overview

This Western classic stars Gary Cooper as Hadleyville marshal Will Kane, about to retire from office and go on his honeymoon with his new Quaker bride, Amy Grace Kelly. But his happiness is short-lived when he is informed that the Miller gang, whose leader Ian McDonald Will had arrested, is due on the 12:00 train. Pacifist Amy urges Will to leave town and forget about the Millers, but this isn't his style; protecting Hadleyburg has always been his duty, and it remains so now. But when he asks for deputies to fend...

Overview

This Western classic stars Gary Cooper as Hadleyville marshal Will Kane, about to retire from office and go on his honeymoon with his new Quaker bride, Amy Grace Kelly. But his happiness is short-lived when he is informed that the Miller gang, whose leader Ian McDonald Will had arrested, is due on the 12:00 train. Pacifist Amy urges Will to leave town and forget about the Millers, but this isn't his style; protecting Hadleyburg has always been his duty, and it remains so now. But when he asks for deputies to fend off the Millers, virtually nobody will stand by him. Chief Deputy Harvey Pell Lloyd Bridges covets Will's job and ex-mistress Katy Jurado; his mentor, former lawman Martin Howe Lon Chaney Jr. is now arthritic and unable to wield a gun. Even Amy, who doesn't want to be around for her husband's apparently certain demise, deserts him. Meanwhile, the clocks tick off the minutes to High Noon -- the film is shot in "real time," so that its 85-minute length corresponds to the story's actual timeframe. Utterly alone, Kane walks into the center of town, steeling himself for his showdown with the murderous Millers. Considered a landmark of the "adult western," High Noon won four Academy Awards including Best Actor for Cooper and Best Song for the hit, "Do Not Forsake Me, O My Darling" sung by Tex Ritter. The screenplay was written by Carl Foreman, whose blacklisting was temporarily prevented by star Cooper, one of Hollywood's most virulent anti-Communists. John Wayne, another notable showbiz right-winger and Western hero, was so appalled at the notion that a Western marshal would beg for help in a showdown that he and director Howard Hawks "answered" High Noon with Rio Bravo 1959.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Bruce Eder
Fred Zinnemann's High Noon was described by John Wayne as the most un-American movie he'd ever seen. It offered an in-your-face story about responsibility, private and public, and some truths about the archetypal American community that would have been unpleasant in any era, but were even more so during the Red Scare of the early 1950s: the spectacle of town marshal Wil Kane (played by a too-old Gary Cooper), abandoned by his friends and neighbors and having to face down outlaws alone, was a pretty raw statement about where some people (including liberal producer Stanley Kramer) feared we were heading in 1952. It was the soundtrack, completed by Dimitri Tiomkin and Ned Washington with a song sung by an off-screen Tex Ritter, that helped turn the movie into a huge box office hit. This was a double irony, and an indicator of just what a miraculous conjuring trick Kramer and Zinnemann and screenwriter Carl Foreman had pulled off: Ritter was a reactionary Republican, Cooper an avowed anti-communist, Foreman an avowed Communist sympathizer (who left Hollywood before the movie was released), the movie had two blacklistees in major roles (Lloyd Bridges and Howland Chamberlain), and Kramer was Hollywood's one respected liberal voice. They came up with a film that opened the way for a generation of serious westerns, including The Bravados, The Big Country, and The Searchers.

    My favorite western of all time!!

    This western set the standard for all others that followed. Director Fred Zinneman does a brilliant job in building almost unbearable suspense. An aging marshall (Gary Cooper) ponders the future with his young bride in anticipation of a revenge-seeking killer and his gang. The clock actually becomes the central focus of the film. Great performances by Gary Cooper, Grace Kelly, Lloyd Bridges and Katy Jurado. A must-see movie for western and suspense fans!

    high noon

    One of the greatest westerns of all time,certainly the benchmark for all the others that followed.A fully deserved oscar for Coop for an outstanding performance of an ordinary man who we can all relate to torn between fear and duty.

    Western Passion Play

    Certainly one of the greatest movies of all time. Drawn from (intentionally or unintentionally) from the Passion of Christ. Very heavy Christian overtones.

    The Classic Western

    Shot in an austere black and white that sets a starkly elegant tone for this excellent movie, HIGH NOON remains amoung the best of it's genre. Many of the Westerns that follow owe a debt to the actors and director for their workmanship and creativity.

    Gary Cooper Gives A Superb Performance Here...

    Cooper won an Oscar for his performance as Marshall Will Kane, who must face down killer Frank Miller and his band of friends. Kane sent Miller to prison several years before, but Miller has been released and has promised to return to the town of Hadleyville to kill Kane. Coincidentally, just as Miller is released, Kane is retiring and marrying Amy(Grace Kelly). Newly married, Kane tells his bride he must stay and face Miller. Drama and tension predominate throughout this gritty black and white film. Tex Ritter's song, Do Not Forsake Me, O My Darling plays throughout, providing a compelling musical background.
