Directed by
Nicholas Ray

Nicholas Ray's western is one of the classics of the genre, a brooding psychological drama in which the female of the species is deadlier than the male. Joan Crawford plays Vienna, a saloon owner whose plans to build a railway station anger the locals. For protection, she calls on her ex-lover Johnny Guitar, once a psychotic gunslinger, now trying to lead a new life as a saloon singer. They face Emma Small, who leads the town gang with her lover and gunslinger, the Dancin' Kid. With Emma issuing an ultimatum, the violence begins but it is in the final face-off that the two women square up, with the men in their lives sidelined from their private feud.
