I love westerns. In complicated times like these, there is nothing more comforting than a western. Tonight I discovered a gem called the Tin Star with Henry Fonda and Anthony Perkins.
The 1957 black and white film received an Oscar nomination for the script. I really enjoyed this guilty pleasure.
Here is a description I found on Google.
(Morgan Hickman (Henry Fonda) is a tough gunslinger with a knack for keeping his cool in tense situations. When he wanders into a town where the local lawman has been killed, he finds callow but eager Ben Owens (Anthony Perkins) temporarily acting as sheriff. Soon Ben, who wants to keep his new position, is looking to Morgan for guidance. Though the bounty hunter has his own issues with law enforcement, he admires Ben’s enthusiasm and decides to train him to be an effective sheriff.)
