Just a good guy, a bad guy, and a clean-cut ending that leaves you shrugging the whole thing off.

High Noon reflected the heightened fear of the Soviets in the '50s, now similar to the xenophobia that has been raised and further inflamed by our political leaders.

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

A simple, somewhat creaky tribute to defiant courageousness.

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

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.

High Noon isn't really a masterpiece, and if you're a fan of more honest Westerns, it's hard not to notice Zinnemann's general lack of interest throughout. But it is a tense, effective little film.

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

High Noon won a fistful of Oscars, but in these days of pasteboard screen machismo, it's worth seeing simply as the anatomy of what it took to make a man before the myth turned sour.
