Zinnemann carefully and deliberately makes the most of the mood cast by the threat of impending violence.

Some of the results ring false, but the memorable theme song and some equally memorable character acting (by Thomas Mitchell and Lon Chaney Jr. more than Lloyd Bridges and Katy Jurado) help things along.

Regarded as '50s melodrama, it's nearly perfect.

Meaningful in its implications, as well as loaded with interest and suspense, High Noon is a western to challenge Stagecoach for the all-time championship.

The Western may be one of the few truly American art forms, and High Noon shows exactly how much potential it can embrace.
