Bad Day at Black Rock

Bad Day at Black Rock – here the 1955 classic movie will aired on on TCM at 8 p.m. Bad Day at Black Rock is a movie about the story of a mysterious stranger who arrives at a tiny isolated town in a desert of the southwest United States in search of a man.

Bad Day at Black Rock (1955) is both a tightly-written, suspenseful, dramatic action film (with film noirish qualities) and a western. On the surface, this American film classic is concerned with the themes of individual integrity, group conformity and complacency, and civic responsibility. It can also be seen as a powerful, allegorical indictment of the Hollywood blacklist, created during the climate of suspicion and fear of the 1950s McCarthy era.

The movie was nominated for three Academy Awards - Spencer Tracy was nominated for Best Actor, director John Sturges for Best Director, and Best Screenplay for Millard Kaufman.
