When a friendly, successful suburban teacher and father is prescribed cortisone for a painful, possibly fatal affliction, he grows dangerously addicted to the experimental drug, resulting in his transformation into a psychotic and ultimately violent household despot. "This Eisenhower-era throat-grabber, shot in expressive CinemaScope, is an excoriating take on the nuclear family. That it came in the day of Father Knows Best makes it all the more shocking -- and wildly entertaining."--Jacket

The man who shot Liberty Valance by John Ford( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'homme qui tua Liberty VALANCE est devenu au même titre que la Chevauchée Fantastique un classique du genre western. James Stewart, sénateur tout-puissant de la ville de Shinbone, essaie de se débarrasser du plus dangereux criminel de la région : Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). Seul John Wayne, solitaire et intrépide cowboy, peut exécuter cette périlleuse mission. Un scénario époustouflant, un réalisateur exceptionnel (John Ford) et un duo inédit, John Wayne et James Stewart, font de ce western une oeuvre admirable. (Source : jaquette)
