Johnny Guitar (1954)
A tough-as-nails ex-dancehall girl (Joan Crawford) opens a saloon/gaming hall on the outskirts of an Arizona town whose residents--led by a rancher (Mercedes McCambridge) who blames Crawford's outlaw lover (Scott Brady) for her brother's death--try to shut her down. Into this frontier feud rides Johnny Guitar (Sterling Hayden), a mysterious wanderer from Crawford's past. Called an anti-McCarthyism allegory and a proto-feminist drama, director Nicholas Ray's cult western co-stars Ward Bond, Ernest Borgnine, John Carradine. 110 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
