High noon by Fred Zinnemann( Visual )

17 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in English and French and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An ageing sheriff makes his last stand at high noon. This acclaimed and controversial genre piece encloses an archetypal western in a real time frame and seems to inflect classic situations with weighty contemporary meaning. It was claimed by the filmmakers to be an anti-McCarthy parable. At least one commentator points out that its implications are very similar to those of Dirty Harry (1971). It was intensely disliked by such leading practitioners of the genre as Howard Hawks, Anthony Mann and Delmar Daves; Hawks made Rio Bravo as a rejoinder

In 1949, a Yemenite Jewish family that was flown to Israel during "Operation Magic Carpet", a clandestine operation that flew 49,000 Yemenite Jews to Israel the year after the state was formed, is forced to move to a government settlement camp in Israel, not realizing the challenges that lie on the horizon for new immigrants. Sallah, the family patriarch with a permanent scowl, discovers the hard way that Israeli bureaucracy could keep his family out of a permanent home for years -- and he vows to fight it...his way. His aversion to hard work and socialist values soon make him a deviant in the eyes of kibbutz leaders and government officials. The sharp, often hilarious satire that became the most successful film in Israeli history is about new immigrants Sallah and his family, who are left in a shack near their promised apartment and are abandoned for months
