Stefan Drees's rating of the film High Noon

The "a man has to do what a man has to do" subject is a bit old-fashioned today; but nonetheless, this a very important and influential film in many respects: e.g. regarding Dimitri Tiomkin's score, Floyd Crosby's camera work, the realtime narration or the political subtext.
