No. 49 – High Noon

Clint Langley’s Flesh cover for prog 2005 (2016) v High Noon (1952) Ultimate Collector’s Edition DVD cover

High Noon won four Academy Awards (Actor, Editing, Music–Score, Music–Song) and four Golden Globe Awards (Actor, Supporting Actress, Music-Score, Cinematography – Black & White) and has been enormously influential since its release.

The composition of this DVD cover is based on one of several official poster variations for the film, and although “through-the-legs” is a common composition – to the point of being a cliché these days – we’re assuming that the poster for this classic western had considerable bearing on the composition’s popularity, eg. Bill Gold’s (1921–2018) For Your Eyes Only (Metro Goldwyn-Mayer, 1981) poster, featured in HoH here.
