Arizona is a classic 1940 Western about the pioneers that formed the state, starring William Holden (Bridge on the River Kwai) and Jean Arthur (Shane). In the 1860s, Phoebe Titus (Jean Arthur) can take care of herself in the rugged territory and will shoot a thief with her handy shotgun. Phoebe sells pies to the hungry travelers passing through and saves every penny for her dream of one day owning the largest cattle ranch in the land. One day, Pete Muncie (William Holden), a restless cowboy, arrives on a wagon train headed to California. Phoebe and Muncie immediately feel an attraction but eventually Muncie needs to leave and continues his journey west. Phoebe stays and helps establish Tucson as a center of industry, fighting to bring the railroad through the town in spite of resistance from other locals, including Jefferson Carteret (Warren William). Wesley Ruggles (I'm No Angel) directs this black-and-white Western epic.
