Masters of Cinema serenades JOHNNY GUITAR (review)

Joan Crawford's ego and vanity combined with director Nicholas Ray's stubbornness created one of the most singular, explosively-overheated westerns of all time in JOHNNY GUITAR in which Sterling Hayden's titular hero plays second fiddle to the battle between two women (Crawford and THE EXORCIST's Mercedes McCambridge).
