High Noon (1952)

High Noon tells its story in real time, as Gary Cooper’s about-to-retire marshal Will Kane discovers that a notorious criminal he brought to justice is due to arrive in town at, well, high noon. Knowing that a fight is coming, Kane attempts to unite the townspeople behind him. High Noon is Bill Clinton’s favourite film, and during his presidency he screened it no fewer than 17 times at the White House.
