It's the real time pacing that takes us from scene to scene as the Marshall tries to find help in a town that has forsaken him.
That is, while I do respect what this film brings in the context of western, and find its perspective very interesting, the execution at some key points falls flat for me.
I original applauded The Searchers for being the most straight forward western I had ever seen, and I applaud High Noon for doing exactly the opposite.
