Directed by Anthony Mann, The Tin Star is a 1957 American Western film starring Henry Fonda, Anthony Perkins, and Betsy Palmer. When Morgan Hickman (Fonda) strolls into town, he is reviled by the townsfolk for his ruthless ways. Hickman was once a sheriff but abandoned a life of civil service and began a career as a bounty hunter. Ben Owens (Perkins), the town's sheriff, is one of the few in town who openly admires Hickman for his experience in dangerous situations and his carefree attitude. When Owens learns that Hickman was once a sheriff, he convinces him to protect himself. As Hickman begins training Owens, the two men discover that they have more in common than they once imagined. When Owens' newfound abilities are put to the test, he proves himself as a worthy sheriff for the skeptical town. The Tin Star was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay at the 1958 Academy Awards.
