Eureka Entertainment have announced their release of hugely iconic western High Noon, starring Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly. Part of their Masters of Cinema series, High Noon is being released for the first time on UK Blu-ray from 16th September 2019.
One of the most treasured Hollywood classics, and one of the most influential and iconic Westerns ever made, High Noon remains a powerful study of heroism and the tension between the individual and the society around him. One of the best films by director Fred Zinnemann (From Here to Eternity) and produced by Stanley Kramer, High Noon is riveting entertainment and an acknowledged American masterpiece, yet one with surprisingly tumultuous roots.
In his Oscar-winning performance, Gary Cooper stars as small-town Marshal Will Kane, preparing to retire and leave town with his young bride Amy (Grace Kelly). However, plans are derailed with the impending arrival of outlaw Frank and his brutal gang. Unfolding in real time, High Noon follows Will as he futilely tries to assemble a posse with the reluctant townspeople, who want Will to forget about a conflict; as does Amy, a Quaker pacifist who just wants to avoid violence. But as high noon approaches, Will realises he must do the moral thing… with or without help.
High Noon will be released on Blu-ray from Eureka Entertainment from 16th September 2019. Also available for pre-order from Eureka Entertainment’s website and Amazon.
