Winner of 4 Academy Awards (including 2 to Tiomkin for Best Score and Best Song), High Noon is a Western classic of the courage in the face of certain death type. Marshal Gary Cooper returns to Hadleyville with Grace Kelly, his new Quaker wife, only to be confronted by the Miller gang, who is bent on exacting revenge on the marshal and the town for an earlier arrest. Everyone refuses to help Cooper...even his wife, who is, of course, a pacifist and is none too happy that Cooper refuses to just leave town. Shot in real time.
