A Week In Film #087: Aha!


Bad Day At Black Rock
Hot damn, another one of those watch-any-day movies. John Sturges knocks out a modern western that also prefigures those western-influenced Japanese easterns. Amazing locations. Superb compositions. Rich colours.

Spencer Tracy as a one-armed war vet stopping off at a near-abandoned one-saloon desert town somewhere in the southwest. Robert Ryan, Ernest Borgnine and Lee Marvin are the rednecks not keen on his presence.
