Plot:
John J. Macreedy doesn't know it, but when he steps off the train at the jerkwater town of Black Rock, he will soon find himself the object of fear, hatred, and even a murder plot! The altruistic Macreedy came to Black Rock to hand over a posthumous military award to a local man whose son had died gallantly in the Second World War. What Macreedy couldn't know when he stepped off of that train was that the town had a shameful secret, one that must be kept at all costs. Written by Alfred Jingle

Bad Day at Black Rock (1955) - Spencer Tracy, Walter Brennan, Ernest Borgnine i Lee Marvin u filmu od Johna Sturgesa (Sedam veličanstvenih i Veliki bijeg), a radnja se dešava 1945. godine gdje Spencer Tracy dolazi u jedan jako jako mali gradić od par desetina ljudi, a to je gradić na kojem je još uvijek divlji zapad. Dolazi kao čovjek o kojem ne znamo ništa, ali znamo da traži neke odgovore, ali naići će na jako neugodne stanovnike koji ga ne prihvaćaju.
