    Directed by : John STURGES

    Country : UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    Acting Prize , 1955

    Synopsis

    Á la fin de la guerre, John Macreedy, un homme de 60 ans manchot arrive dans une petite bourgade de l'Ouest américain, perdue en plein désert, Black Rock. Il s'y rend pour remettre au père d'un Japonais américain, qui lui a sauvé la vie, la médaille que son fils a gagnée avant de mourir.
    L'arrivée de cet homme surprend les habitants ne sachant pas ce que cet étranger vient faire chez eux. Certains paniquent tandis que d'autres se montrent agressifs envers John.
    John découvre que le père a été tué par les habitants au début du conflit dans un délire patriotique. Il affronte à son tour ces derniers et, malgré son bras unique, triomphe de leur racisme.
