A town Marshal must face a gang and his leader, an outlaw he sent up years ago. High Noon received seven Academy Award nominations, winning four, including Best Actor for Gary Cooper. It was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" in 1989, the NFR's first year of existence. "A terrific piece of filmmaking. It's taut, believable as it unspools. It's charismatic, with a slow buildup of tension in near-real time." Washington Post
