- 1 hr 34 min
Vera Cruz is a 1954 western. It features a large ensemble cast that includes Gary Cooper, Burt Lancaster, Ernest Borgnine, Charles Bronson and many others. Robert Aldrich directed Vera Cruz. The movie is similar to High Noon in that it represented a different style than the ordinary Hollywood western. One of the interesting things about the movie is that the characters are ambiguous. The movie eschews the typical good guy-bad guy distinction. The film also deals with violence in a more realistic and cynical way. Vera Cruz set the stage for the more aggressive and realistic westerns that followed in its wake.
