One of the most famous [[TheWestern Western]] films, despite [[AvertedTrope omitting]] or [[SubvertedTrope subverting]] many of the genre's tropes, Fred Zinnemann's ''High Noon'' (1952) is in some ways a gentle {{deconstruction}} of TheWestern, depicting a hero mired in moral complexities, rather than the simple black-and-white of the traditional Western.

The screenplay was written by Carl Foreman, while he was under investigation by the House Un-American Activities Committee (and subsequently [[TheHollywoodBlacklist blacklisted]] in Hollywood) during the early-'50s RedScare. The film has been interpreted by many as a parable about U.S. society in general, and U.S. intellectuals in particular, abandoning those summoned to appear before the committee.
