Warhorse; a novel of the old West by John M Cunningham( Book )

8 editions published between 1956 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"WARHORSE is a lusty, muscular first novel by the author of the distinguished short story that was the basis for the motion picture, High noon. The time is 1882 and the scene ranges boldly over the face of the Old West from San Antonio north to Warhorse, Montana. The days of the great American cattle boom were rough and exciting, and Cunningham evokes them with wonderful authenticity: the bawling, milling herds, the vast prairies, the sharp financial practices, the traditions of the Old West striving to resist the encroachments of the new. But WARHORSE is primarily Buford Allen's story: tough, wily, incorrigible old Buford Allen, whose double-or-nothing gamble with fate is prompted by fierce passions, paradoxically tempered by the tenderest sentiments of love. Across the dust-choked prairies and through the wide-open towns Buford pursues his impossible dreams, clashing with the law, careless of life and honor alike, stubbornly battling his enemies--all but the unseen enemy within himself. A tale of hard men in furious action, of love found and love lost, of pride and greed and humility, WARHORSE is a big and compelling novel."--Book jacket
High noon by Fred Zinnemann( Visual )

In one of the first revisionist westerns to question conventional representations of heroism, Gary Cooper stars as a newly married marshal about to retire from his post who is forced into a last showdown with a murderous outlaw. As the clock ticks in real time toward the fateful confrontation, the marshal must face his nemesis alone, his most trusted allies in the town having dismissed his cause as futile. Abandoned by his fellow citizens, he is forced to take up his badge and guns again, alienating his new bride, a Quaker who is opposed to violence. Screenwriter Carl Foreman was blacklisted not long after the films release, and his script directly reflects the rising tide of distrust in Hollywood caused by Senator Joseph McCarthy and the HUAC hearings

Am Tag seiner Hochzeit steht Sheriff Kane vor einer schweren Gewissensentscheidung. Soll er sich der Rache des gefürchteten Mörders Miller stellen oder dem Bitten seiner jungen Frau Amy nachgeben und die Stadt verlassen? Als zwölf Uhr mittags der Zug in glühender Hitze im Bahnhof einrollt, hat die Stunde der Entscheidung geschlagen. Kaum ein anderer Western hat das Genre so nachhaltig geprägt wie Fred Zinnemanns vierfach Oscar-prämierter Klassiker. Fern jeder Romantisierung des Wilden Westens schuf er einen Film voll vibrierender Spannung mit einem exzellenten Gary Cooper als mit der Angst ringender, müder Held. An seiner Seite die unvergessene Grace Kelly. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)

Development of Test Methods for Antiseize Compounds( )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The seizure of threaded connections and other tight fits was found to result from galling of the contacting surfaces. A quantitative method was developed for measuring the galling characteristics of standard metal surfaces under controlled conditions. Anti-seize compounds can be evaluated by observing their effect on these measured characteristics. A seizure tester was designed and constructed which automatically records galling test data and can be used for rapid routing testing. Metal specimens which are used with this machine can be: (1) assembled with an anti-seize compound between the test surfaces, (2) exposed to conditions simulating specific applications, and then (3) tested for seizure. The results of seizure tests made with several commercial anti-seize compounds are included. A preliminary correlation was obtained between these testing procedures and other performance ratings. It is concluded that this basic test method can be used to evaluate anti-seize compounds for: (1) High temperature service (1200 - 2000 F), (2) Aircraft oxygen system service, (3) Liquid oxygen system service, and (4) Similar specific applications
