Hollywood legends Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly (in her first starring role) carry this Western classic featuring one of cinema’s most famous showdowns. Cooper is a sheriff left out to dry by the very town he has sworn to protect from a gang of gunslingers due to arrive at noon. The “24” of its time, the film unfolds in close to real-time, complete with tension-filled shots of the ticking clock.

This edition features a transfer re-mastered from the original negative, plus plenty of extras, including feature commentary, a 50-minute documentary “making of” hosted by Leonard Maltin, several featurettes and a performance of Tex Ritter’s Oscar-winning song “Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darlin.’”
