Director John Sturges scores a hit with Spencer Tracy in "Bad Day in Black Rock". Black Rock is a small town out in the desert of the west. A train stops at this miserable town and out comes Spencer Tracy. He is going to meet up with Robert Ryan who means to kill him one way or the other. One of my favorite character actors is in "A Bad Day in Black Rock". Walter Brennan has a small part and was used frequently in John Sturges movies. Some call this a modern western, others say it is an anti war movie, I just call it a classic American Movie. Please let me know your reaction. Just leave your message here on the KCLS web site.
