Front Row Classics returns to examine one of the most popular and critically acclaimed westerns ever made. High Noon might even be better categorized as a suspense thriller set in the Old West. Allison Means joins Brandon and Eric to examine the themes of loyalty, cowardice and standing up for what is right. The hosts also examine the backdrop of the Hollywood Blacklist, which looms large over the film to this day.

Brandon, Eric and Allison head back to the Old West to examine the timeless themes of High Noon!
