The phony western

The title song from Johnny Guitar, an extravagant and theatrical gunslinger western in which cowboys vanish and die with the grace of ballerinas.
This is, as Fran├žois Truffaut described, the beauty and the beast of westerns.
Directed by Nicholas Ray (1954).
Starring Joan Crawford and Sterling Hayden.
Song performed by Peggy Lee.
