A classic 1955 FilmNoir directed by John Sturges and starring Creator/SpencerTracy, Robert Ryan, Walter Brennan, Creator/ErnestBorgnine, and Creator/LeeMarvin.

From the time one-armed veteran John J. Macreedy (Tracy) steps off the train in Black Rock, he feels a chill from the local residents. The town is only a speck on the map and few if any strangers ever come to the place.

Macreedy himself is tight-lipped about the purpose of his trip and he finds that the hotel refuses him a room, the local garage refuses to rent him a car and the sheriff is a useless drunkard. It's apparent that the locals have something to hide but when he finally tells them that he is there to speak to a Japanese-American farmer named Komoko, he touches a nerve so sensitive that he will spend the next 24 hours fighting for his life.
