BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK


In Picks in todays WSJ, Ben Kingsley lists 5 of his favorite performances in film.


One of his selections was Spencer Tracy in the 1955 Bad Day at Black Rock. That was always one of my favorite pictures, and one which I think is singled out too rarely as one of the all-time great movies. It came out at the end of long period of cowboy movies, two years after Shane (which is often celebrated), and it's too often ignored. I'm glad he mentioned it.
