High Noon: The Cowards Among us

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Feb 8, 2021

 So, this is what happened the other day. AloneFor some strange reason, the theme song from "High Noon," the 1952 western, invaded my brain. Now, you should know that I am not a western fan by any stretch and this song is never one that is on my playlist. Still, it persisted, first in the read more

High Noon (1952, Fred Zinnemann)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 11, 2018

High Noon is a film all about courage and cowardice, so it’s appropriate the film starts with the most courageous thing it’s ever going to do and it does a few. It commits to its theme song. Not a piece of music from Dimitri Tiomkin, but a country song (written by Tiomkin, lyrics by Ned Washington, read more

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Jul 9, 2017

Part of the reason I read film books is to have an outsider entice me to check out a movie. Where some of you come here to have me tell you whether a certain film is worth your time or not – and if you value my opinion, I thank you – I defer to experts whose cases for a certain film are read more

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Nov 13, 2016

  2-  Helen: What kind of woman are you? How can you leave him like this? Does the sound of guns frighten you that much?Amy: I’ve heard guns. My father and my brother were killed by guns. They were on the right side but that didn’t help them any when the shooting started. My brother read more

The Dark Humor of High Noon (1952)

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jun 12, 2016

**Contains spoilers** When I watched High Noon many years ago, I was struck by its pacing, its intensity, its seriousness. This time, I kept laughing. There’s something comic about watching Marshal Will Kane (Gary Cooper) aimlessly tread around the town, waiting for someone, anyone to assist read more

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 11, 2015

Drums softly beating. A voice mournfully bellowing,”Do not forsake me, oh, my darlin‘.” It can only mean one thing, the beginning of High Noon, a western that has grown near and dear to my heart in the recent years. And yet how can a western of under 90 minutes mesmerize and cause read more

Mildred's Fatburgers Posted by Beth Daniels on May 23, 2014

This one gets two posters... ...because the picture is pretty long. Seven Samurai (1954) I don't know why I keep saying I don't like Westerns. Maybe it's the ghost of the Saturday afternoon UHF programming of my youth — the trope of the Indian whoop over gunshot read more

Rio Bravo: Howard Hawk's "Response" to High Noon

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Nov 12, 2013

The classic status attributed to Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo (1959) has always puzzled me. While it's a solid, well-done Western, it doesn't rank with the best Westerns of the 1950s (e.g., Shane, The Hanging Tree, 3:10 to Yuma, the Anthony Mann-James Stewart collaborations, etc.). It's also no read more

High Noon (1952)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Sep 14, 2013

This may not be the greatest film of all time, but it is certainly one of the greatest westerns gifted to us so generously by Fred Zinnemann. It tells a very simple story, yet it is, in fact, so powerful simply, because of the hero it depicts. In its time it also served as a condemning allegory of t read more

High Noon

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jun 22, 2010

High Noon is described as “a western for people who don’t like westerns.”  That’s pretty accurate considering I loved it. Minutes after Marshall Will Kane (Gary Cooper) gets married to Amy (Grace Kelly), a young Quaker, the town gets news that a gang of bandits are waiting at read more
