Original DVD Trailer for Inside High Noon, produced by Transmultimedia Entertainment for the Paramount DVD release of the 2-Disc Special Collectors Edition of the 1952 Motion Picture, High Noon.
Gary Cooper won the Oscar for Best Actor in this classic tale of a lawman who stands alone to defend a town of cowardly citizens against a gang of revenge-seeking criminals. In the greatest showdown in the history of cinema, Cooper stands to lose not only the town but his new wife. The film also stars one of Hollywood’s most beloved and prolific actors, Lloyd Bridges, and marks the first starring role for screen legend, Grace Kelly.
The real-life story behind the making of HIGH NOON is dramatic, suspenseful, gripping. Like the film itself, it is a story of fear, of heroism, and the very real danger of political abuse. What happens up on the screen is in many ways a metaphor for the extraordinary events behind the camera.
But Inside High Noon also explores the film itself:
Why it has aroused controversy among critics. Why its treatment of women was far ahead of its time. Why its treatment of masculinity was far ahead of its time. Why it has remained popular decades and decades after its release. Indeed, why High Noon is the masterpiece it is.
