Johnny Guitar


Dir. Nicholas Ray. U.S., 1954, 110 mins. 35mm. With Joan Crawford, Sterling Hayden, Mercedes McCambridge. This operatic western, with Joan Crawford as a gun-toting saloon owner, was beloved by European critics and filmmakers as a great example of a classic genre being reinvented by an idiosyncratic director, Nicholas Ray, who Eric Rohmer called “the poet of love and violence.”
