The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

John Ford
USA 1962
123 min

In this early late-Western Tom Doniphon, the revolver hero, and Ransom Stoddard, the lawyer, embody the two sides of a medallion, the old and the new order of the young state being the USA. And they love the same woman. Doniphon sacrifices this love and supports Stoddard in his fight for right and order. However, the new society misjudges the man, who really shot Liberty Valance, and rather clings on its own legend.
