Bad Day at Black Rock

Spencer Tracy received his fifth Oscar nomination, thanks to this “modern-day” Western, for his portrayal of a one-armed stranger who gets off the train at a small Southwestern desert town and stumbles upon a terrible secret. His inquiries are greeted with mere hostility, which quickly escalates to threats and outright violence. As tensions rise, the lone hero realizes he’s going to have to fight a whole cast of villains—including Ernest Borgnine and Lee Marvin as the local bullies, a double-crossing woman (Anne Francis), and the town’s terrifying boss (Robert Ryan). A relentlessly fast-paced Cinemascope thriller—don’t miss this one on the big screen.
