Bad Day at Black Rock

Bad Day at Black Rock

Oscar-winner Spencer Tracy received his fifth Oscar nomination for his portrayal of a one-armed stranger who arrives at a small Southwestern town shortly after WWII in pursuit of a Japanese farmer. When he discovers that the farmer was killed by local racists, he becomes a target of murder. Nominated for Best Screenplay and directed by the great John Sturges ("The Great Escape," "The Magnificent Seven," "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral"). A splendid cast featuring Tracy, Oscar-nominee Robert Ryan ("Crossfire," "The Wild Bunch") and Oscar-winners Lee Marvin ("Cat Ballou," "The Dirty Dozen"), Ernest Borgnine (TV's "McHale's Navy," "Marty") and Dean Jagger ("High Noon").
