High Noon is a 1952 American Western film directed by Fred Zinnemann and starring Gary Cooper.

In nearly real time, the film tells the story of a town marshal forced to face a gang of killers by himself. The screenplay was written by Carl Foreman. The film won four Academy Awards (Actor, Editing, Music-Score, Music-Song)and four Golden Globe Awards (Actor, Supporting Actress, Score, Cinematography-Black and White).

The award-winning score was written by Russian-born composer Dimitri Tiomkin.

In 1989, High Noon was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”, entering the registry during the NFR’s first year of existence.

High Noon, Part II: The Return of Will Kane is a 1980 made-for television film sequel to the classic 1952 Western film High Noon.
