Description by OLDIES.com:

Folks in Black Rock have their own way of welcoming mysterious, one-armed stranger John J. Macreedy. He's welcome to leave. Or they'll make sure he leaves in a pine box.

Two-time Academy Award winner Spencer Tracy (who was also nominated for this film in 1955) plays World War II veteran Macreedy, who keeps his own counsel about why he's come to Black Rock and who keeps his wits about him when confronted with threats and violence. Director John Sturges (The Great Escape) ramps up the tension while revealing Macreedy's mission and the town's grim secret. Robert Ryan, Walter Brennan, Ernest Borgnine and Lee Marvin are among the town's thugs and lap dogs. "I'm half horse, half alligator" one says. They'll find Macreedy is even tougher stuff.

Product Description:

Spencer Tracy stars with Robert Ryan, Lee marvin, Ernest Bornine and Walter Brennen in this offbeat and chilling tale of a man pitted against an entire town.
