Profile:

  • His work is defined by a potent balance between extreme visuals and piercing sound.
  • Also a balance between wide and close shots.
  • Often scored  characters to their own theme music.
  • Had actors perform (e.g., walk across a room) to a recording of the score that would eventually be added to the film.
  • Expanded on the work of Fred Zinnemann in High Noon to make close-up shots of characters’ eyes part of the genre’s visual lexicon.
  • A proclivity towards scenes with little or no dialogue particularly those involving a standoff.
  • Expanded on the linearity of the Western set-pieces by having his characters circle each other in a duel or face off within a circular perimeter.
