A suspenseful tale of revenge with Gary Cooper, Grace Kelly and Thomas Mitchell.
Gary Cooper plays a small town sheriff forced to face an old enemy arriving on a train at high noon. Filmed in black and white, the 1952 movie also features Grace Kelly as Cooper's Quaker wife. Note the key scene leading up to the showdown when Cooper, deserted by all his friends to face his fate alone, walks through the empty town while the clock is inching toward noon. It's shot brilliantly, with images that are stark, austere and unforgettable. And you'll have a hard time getting the theme song out of your head.
