Plot Summary
On the outskirts of town, the hard-nosed Vienna (Joan Crawford) owns a saloon frequented by the undesirables of the region, including Dancin' Kid (Scott Brady) and his gang. Another patron of Vienna's establishment is Johnny Guitar (Sterling Hayden), a former gunslinger and her lover. When a heist is pulled in town that results in a man's death, Emma Small (Mercedes McCambridge), Vienna's rival, rallies the townsfolk to take revenge on Vienna's saloon -- even without proof of her wrongdoing.

    this movie is purposely subversive; an unmistakable political statement on its time. on either side of the camera, everyone involved was a movie veteran who knew jut what they were involved with, and played their roles to the hilt. weird, and twisted it is, but outstanding in all ways.

    This has to be the dumbest western I have ever seen, and the acting was even worse.
