Our classic movie this evening is an over-the-top melodrama which features the after-life, bull-fighting and the talents of Ava Gardner and James Mason. It's the choice of Ruth Barton.
Tony Tracy discusses tonight's Classic Movie 'Bad Day at Black Rock' with Seán Rocks. The film is a western starring Spencer Tracy. Made in 1955, and shot in the searing heat of the Sierra Nevada, it was directed by John Sturges. However, it is no ordinary Western but actually a deeply political film in support of a liberal America.
