Johnny Guitar

Vienna runs a saloon at the outskirts of a godforsaken Arizona town and maintains a relationship with one of her patrons - a man with a questionable past. Her former lover, Johnny Guitar, returns claiming he is still in love with her and offering her much-needed protection for her saloon. Her life seems to have taken a turn for the better, until notorious outlaw Dancin' Kid arrives in town and robs the bank with his gang. When suspicion falls on Vienna, the townsfolk decide to take the law into their own hands. A Western classic, ?Johnny Guitar? easily transcends the confines of its genre to enter noir territory. It’s not for nothing that François Truffaut called it ?the Beauty and the Beast of Westerns?.
