Cooper/Bridges Fight
Canada / 3:00 / 2002 / sound / b/w
The anxieties and frustrations of McCarthy-era Hollywood are integrated into this reconstruction of an infamous scene from "High Noon." The struggle between a sheriff and his deputy become one with the film's emulsion. Considered "un-American" by the House of Un-American Activities Committee, High Noon's writer and director was blacklisted in the 1950s for alleged Communist sympathies.

"They punish each other mercilessly, nothing barred. The horses, becoming nervous, rear and whine in their stalls..."- from "High Noon," original script by Carl Foreman.
