"A comment on Lionel Chetwynd's documentary Darkness at High Noon: The Carl Foreman Documents. The documentary contends that Foreman was the auteur of High Noon--the 1951 movie produced by Stanley Kramer--as well as the genius behind all of the previously successful pictures produced by Kramer's company. Like other Hollywood studio employees at the time, Foreman was asked to cooperate with the Unamerican Activities Committee by apologizing for his political past and naming other members of the Communist Party. The documentary shows that when he refused to cooperate, Kramer forced him out of his company, deprived him of a producing credit, and then took credit for a film he (Kramer) had virtually disowned. Research shows that uncritical acceptance of Foreman's point of view by the documentary's makers led them to damn Kramer from the outset, and thus to not research his side of the story enough. Study of the entire Kramer-Foreman episode demonstrates that it resulted from conflicting yet not dishonorable loyalties and principles, as Kramer was not indifferent to the movie and did not take any credit."

"Part of a special issue on Austrian-born film director Fred Zinnemann. The subversion of cliched female types in Zinnemann's Western High Noon is discussed. Classical Hollywood Westerns usually exemplify the homogenizing practices of dominant societal values, particularly as these values are applied to those marginalized by American patriarchy. High Noon is ultimately a complex split-narrative that elucidates the struggle of a white Quaker woman and a Mexican-American woman, who represent the marginalized in society. Unusually, these characters find common ground in speaking to each other as women, both take action in the narrative and power over their bodies, and neither is sacrificed. Zinnemann's depiction of women seems to suggest that emancipation from the thoroughly corrupt and valueless system portrayed will only be possible when women and men are willing to work together toward effective change."

Examines how the visual and musical style of Fred Zinnemann's Western film 'High Noon' (1952) - through its repetition of clock motifs and its diegetic and nondiegetic use of the theme song, 'Do Not Forsake Me' - reflects Cold War tensions and anxieties about containment and nuclear war.

"Part of a special issue on Austrian-born film director Fred Zinnemann. Zinnemann's classic Western High Noon is examined. The writer discusses the film in the context of Zinnemann's European background and influences, his emphasis on socially-cognizant filmmaking, the resonance of the Will Kane character for Zinnemann, the importance of his contributions to the film's visual design, and the competing views of history at the heart of the film. He notes that the film's didactic seriousness of purpose achieves some distance from the entertainment formulas of studio filmmaking. He suggests that the emphatic nature of the historical debates in the narrative is a clear index of the film's close connection to the political turmoil of the period in which it was made and of the philosophical basis that might underlie an aesthetic of social realism. The behavior of the individual carries clear social consequences, he continues; the task of the artist, as Zinnemann understands it, is to dramatize these connections." [Art Index]

Despite the fact that John Wayne is often understood as a uniquely American star, he was the world's most popular actor in the 1950s. This article, therefore, explores the international resonance of Wayne, connecting the sensations evoked by Wayne's body with the embodied experiences of global capitalism and modernization.
