Am Tag seiner Hochzeit steht Sheriff Kane vor einer schweren Gewissensentscheidung. Soll er sich der Rache des gefürchteten Mörders Miller stellen oder dem Bitten seiner jungen Frau Amy nachgeben und die Stadt verlassen? Als zwölf Uhr mittags der Zug in glühender Hitze im Bahnhof einrollt, hat die Stunde der Entscheidung geschlagen. Kaum ein anderer Western hat das Genre so nachhaltig geprägt wie Fred Zinnemanns vierfach Oscar-prämierter Klassiker. Fern jeder Romantisierung des Wilden Westens schuf er einen Film voll vibrierender Spannung mit einem exzellenten Gary Cooper als mit der Angst ringender, müder Held. An seiner Seite die unvergessene Grace Kelly. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)
