Film Series: Winchester ’73

Winchester1950. USA. Dir. Anthony Mann. With James Stewart. 92 min.

Jimmy gets his gun – violently – in a nervy tale of revenge. The first of the legendary collaborations between all-American star and noir auteur showed the darker side of Stewart’s neuroses and effectively ushered in a new era of psychological depth in the Western. It’s at once a panoramic genre masterclass and a fraught, timely chronicle of America’s obsession with firearms.
