High Noon

5

Building tension during its near real-time length through repeated imagery and precise use of music, Fred Zinneman's bleak Western is generations ahead of the cheery oaters of its day. Following on from an hour of constant talk as Marshall Kane pleads with the townsfolk to support him against the gunmen arriving at noon, the almost silent final 15 minutes have more excitement than most of today's volume-cranked blockbusters can even dream of.
