The Baron of Arizona

One of the most purely entertaining films legendary director Samuel Fuller made for indie producer Robert ​​Lippert, The Baron of Arizona was shot by James Wong Howe during a fallow period of his career for a small fraction of his normal salary, and his chiaroscuro, hushed tones, and focus on interiority defines a film that elides the outdoor grandiosity aimed for in so many B westerns.
