“This is a film of integrity and purpose, a revelation of human character and a masterpiece of storytelling art.” - John W. Riley, Boston Globe

“Essential viewing.” David Parkinson, Empire

Saturday, April 8 at 12pm | Seemingly a simple contribution to the Western genre, Zinnemann’s HIGH NOON contains multitudes, a minimalist morality tale of honor, loyalty, and integrity. In small Hadleyville, New Mexico, outgoing Marshall Will Kane (Gary Cooper, in an Academy Award-winning performance) prepares to move away with his new bride, Quaker pacifist Amy (Grace Kelly), when he learns that the criminal Frank Miller - who he imprisoned - is returning to Hadleyville, arriving on the noon train, determined to get revenge. Bound by conflicting duties - to his role as marshall, to the town, and to his wife - Kane’s fate inches ever closer as the train’s arrival time nears. Carl Forman’s (THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI) screenplay, considered a thinly veiled metaphor to the Hollywood blacklisting of the 1940s and 50s, used the conventions of the Western genre to give audiences a new kind of hero.
