Paul Jazz's rating of the film Bad Day at Black Rock

Still stands tall alongside many 'tough guy' movies even today (albeit with less blood or swearing). Great performances by Tracy, Ryan and Marvin, lovely panoramic photography - the low level group shots in the street are brilliant. The sense of foreboding and tension is pretty convincing too. One of my fave 'noir/westerns'
