McCarthy-era symbolism, great landscapes, amazing TruColor costumes and sets, Joan Crawford's eyebrows -- this movie has something for everybody.
I saw Johnny Guitar about ten years ago and I liked it just fine then. Now it is one of my favorite films of the 1950s. Here's why:
10. Joan Crawford in a Western! WWJD -- What would Joan do? What wouldn't she do?
9. The landscapes, filmed in TruColor, are spectacular and somehow just a bit alien.
8. Johnny Guitar makes a great case against the blacklisting and witch hunts of the McCarthy Era.
