High Noon

High Noon (1952)

3 corrections

Directed by: Fred Zinnemann

Starring: Gary Cooper, Grace Kelly, Lloyd Bridges, Thomas Mitchell

Genres: Drama, Western

Corrected entry: This film supposedly takes place at noon, but the shadows vary greatly in direction and size.

Correction: The film takes place one morning, over a time span of just under two hours - from 10.35am to 12.20pm the same day. Obviously the whole film does not take place at noon, only the climactic gun battle does - and it was shot at noon, over four consecutive days. The shadows are just what you would expect throughout the film.

Corrected entry: In the opening, as the three gunmen cross the tracks toward the train station, a helicopter can be seen flying overhead. It stops and turns sideways in the last couple of frames.

Correction: It's not a helicopter, it's a bird.

Corrected entry: Just after Kane's wife and ex-mistress drive past him, there is a crane shot that pulls up and away to show the lawman alone in the streets. As the frame clears the tops of the set, the audience can glimpse the high-rise buildings of Los Angeles in the background.

Correction: After watching this scene, all I saw were tall trees in the background, not the skyline of Los Angeles.

In the final duel, when Gary Cooper is shot on his left arm, he grabs the spot where he was supposedly wounded with his right hand, then takes off the hand, and we don't see a wound and his shirt is not torn. In the following shot we see both the wound and the tear in the shirt.



The pained expression on Gary Cooper's face throughout the film was genuine; the actor was suffering from a bleeding ulcer at the time of production.
