Gary Cooper stars as Will Kane, a marshal who gives up his badge and renounces violence for his new bride Amy (Grace Kelly). But on his wedding day, Will receives word that Frank Miller, a violent criminal he put away, has been released on a technicality and is headed in on the noon train to exact his revenge. Just as Kane is leaving his old life behind to start anew, he has to pick up the gun one last time to protect the people of Hadleyville, even as they turn against him and refuse to help. Controversial in its time, High Noon explores the morals of the west and the lone hero’s sense of duty and honour, while also featuring some of the best roles for women in the genre’s canon.
