Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past.
In the Western tradition, a stranger comes to town. In the Noir tradition, he’s snooping around to find answers and wearing a black suit with a skinny tie. In the tradition of 127 Hours and The Fugitive, he only has one arm.
The townsfolk are in for a bad day, ensured by director John Sturges and star Spencer Tracy, in this 1955 spin on dusty conventions.
