Dir. Clint Eastwood (1973). As punitive as Dirty Harry, Eastwoods first Western (as a director) reimagines High Noon to match the sour aftermath of US disengagement from Vietnamits the spectacle of quasi-divine punishment visited against a gutless, guilty town that hires (or rather drafts) men to do its dirty work, and then discards them.
