High Noon Coming to 4K UHD

LVC's debut, is coming to 4K on April 16th from Kino Lorber

Screen legend Gary Cooper (Vera Cruz) won the 1952 Oscar for Best Actor in this classic tale of an aging lawman who stands alone to defend a town of righteous cowards in one of the greatest showdowns in the history of cinema. The movie also marks the first starring role for a beautiful young actress who went on to become one of Hollywood’s most beloved icons—Grace Kelly (The Country Girl). Produced by Stanley Kramer (Inherit the Wind), directed by Fred Zinnemann (From Here to Eternity) and written for the screen by Carl Foreman (The Bridge on the River Kwai), High Noon garnered a total of 4 Academy Awards, including Best Score for Dimitri Tiomkin (Rio Bravo), and now stands high as one of the most cherished and influential films of all time. Western favorites Thomas Mitchell (Stagecoach), Lloyd Bridges (Canyon Passage), Katy Jurado (Arrowhead), Otto Kruger (Duel in the Sun), Lon Chaney Jr. (The Indian Fighter), Henry Morgan (The Ox-Bow Incident), Jack Elam (Support Your Local Sheriff) and Lee Van Cleef (For a Few Dollars More) round out the rousing cast.

  2. Lee turned down the role of the Deputy which went to Lloyd Bridges because Stanley Kramer wanted Lee to have his nose altered by a surgeon.
    Lee was soon contacted by Kramer and offered the role of Jack Colby the last henchman cast. There were no lines in the script for Colby so I wonder if Kramer just talked the part on to the roles of Robert Wilkins, Ian MacDonald and Shen Wooley.
    Director Fred Zimmerman told Lee to say " Hi Frank " or something similar along with Wilki and Wooley when Ian MacDonald got off the train. But Lee asked Fred if he could keep his mouth shut since he hadn't had any lines so far as it would make his character more mysterious. Fred said okay just run up to Frank Miller with the others but let them do all the talking.
    Still a good role for Lee. Lee is the first person you see at the beginning.
