Image from the film man of the West.
A model citizen (Gary Cooper) is forced to confront his very dark past in one of the greatest Westerns ever made. Anthony Mann brought the sensibilities of film noir to a remarkable series of 1950s films that explore the psychological and moral implications of Western violence. Man of the West was his crowning achievement, its disquieting plot developments perfectly complemented by its extraordinary widescreen compositions. Jean-Luc Godard said of the film, “I have seen nothing so completely new since—why not?—Griffith ... each shot of Man of the West gives one the impression that Anthony Mann is redefining the Western.” (35mm Presentation)
