A former lawman faces down a gang of criminals in this classic western, for which Gary Cooper won an Oscar® for Best Actor.
Dir Fred Zinnemann
With Gary Cooper, Grace Kelly, Thomas Mitchell
A former lawman (Cooper) suspends his plans to leave town when news reaches him that a newly released criminal is coming back with his men, looking for revenge. Despite his best attempts to recruit people to face this threat, he ultimately finds himself alone – and having to face them all. This classic western earned Gary Cooper an Oscar® for Best Actor, and was also awarded for its music, but it lost out on Best Picture to Cecil B DeMille’s The Greatest Show on Earth.
