Johnny Guitar by Nicholas Ray( Visual )

30 editions published between 1954 and 2016 in English and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johnny Guitar rides into a lonely Arizona town, passing by a dynamite blast and a stage robbery in the canyon below, arriving at Vienna's saloon in the middle of a raging dust storm. He's looking for a new life, for a job where he can play guitar and be nice to the customers. There's no sense, to him anyway, in resurrecting Johnny Logan, the deadly gunslinger he once was and hopes never to be again. But Vienna's feud with local cattle baron Emma Small--over the favors of a cowboy called the Dancin' Kid and the location of the railroad--is approaching its apex, and Johnny's skills will be needed. Both lauded and lamented by critics, the film has been called a psycho sexual melodrama, an anti-McCarthy parable, an expressionistic experiment, and a masterpiece of symbolism in Technicolor so lurid it almost overwhelms the neurotic story. Whatever the final verdict, this is certainly not a typical Western
