Title: 'In a Moment of Brilliance': Heidegger's Horsemen, HIGH NOON and the Existential Sentiment of 'Westerns'
Author: Cameron, Evan Wm.
Hehner, Barbara
Abstract: By evidence and common consent, great 'western' movies are mythical encompassing a Weltanschauung that has engaged viewers within diverse cultures for over a century. Questions recur, however. What makes them so? and why have they proven so enticing to male viewers in particular? Within this essay I and Barbara Hehner address those questions, attending to the design of HIGH NOON as exemplary.
