Johnny Guitar

Johnny Guitar is an unusual “western” movie from 1954. Starring Joan Crawford, Sterling Hayden and Mercedes McCambridge, it is very untypical of the genre. Although Sterling Hayden portrays the title character, — Johnny “Guitar” Logan – he is really an observer to the action. The film’s most important and strongest characters are women. The film was also highly regarded by critics for its allegorical qualities (some viewed it as an indictment of MyCarthyism) as well as its cinematography. Wikipedia has a good article about the film.
