Starring screen legend Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly in her first major movie role, High Noon is one of the best-loved and most enduring films of Hollywood’s golden age. It won four Academy Awards, including Best Actor for Cooper, and became a cultural touchstone for a generation of film and western lovers alike. Nosh with us before watching High Noon. After the film Glenn Frankel enlightens us with how Foreman’s concept of High Noon evolved from idea to first draft to final script, becoming along the way a parable about the Red Scare, its perpetrators and its victims.
