Considered one of the best Westerns—and one of the best films—of all times, High Noon boasts stellar performances by Gary Cooper as a frontier marshall nearing retirement who is left alone to defend his town from a revengeful gunman and Grace Kelly as the Quaker dame he has just married. The film, which was famously shot in “real time”, won four Academy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards. Rated PG
