A town Marshal, despite the disagreements of his newlywed bride and the townspeople around him, must face a gang of deadly killers alone at high noon when the gang leader, an outlaw he sent up years ago, arrives on the noon train.
Vicious people under Franco's regime are part of a singular parade in this Spanish film. Cruelty is the word to define actions against a naive young woman who can be hopeless anxious searching for a marrying candidate. The final travelling -around three hundred meters of Emilia running under the rain- is a long shot very well resisted by actress Susana Canales. Trouble with the censorship is that everything, including what the actress is giving the audience, indicates a tragic end.
