Cleveland Cult Film Festival 5

Johnny Guitar

United States | 1954 | Nicholas Ray

Johnny Guitar

Nicholas Ray's crazy, campy, kinky Western is actually a thinly veiled critique of McCarthyism. Championed by French critics long before it became a cult classic here, the film added feminism and Freud to the frontier-movie mix. Joan Crawford plays a tough, gun-totin', pants-wearin' saloon owner who locks horns over men and money with another local woman (Mercedes McCambridge), a half-cocked hothead who tries to run her out of town. With Sterling Hayden, Ward Bond, Ernest Borgnine, and John Carradine.

110 min. 35mm color print from Paramount Pictures.
