High Noon


Dir. Fred Zinnemann (1952) A film loved and loathed by the both the right and left—Eisenhower adored it; John Wayne hated it; Bill Clinton screened it at the White House 17 times—Zinnemann’s real-time Western concerns the conflicts of conscience of both Sheriff Will Kane (Gary Cooper) and his new Quaker bride, played by Grace Kelly in her first major screen role.
