“High Noon (1952) [starring Gary Cooper] is possibly the all-time best Western film ever made - a successful box-office production by Stanley Kramer and director Fred Zinnemann (who also directed From Here to Eternity (1953) and A Man For All Seasons (1966)). The Western genre was employed to tell an uncharacteristic social problem tale about civic responsibility, without much of the typical frontier violence, panoramic landscapes, or tribes of marauding Indians.” AMC Filmsite
                                     My plot summary

In a territory a man was sent in to clean up a really bad situation. He does and sends the really bad dude away. Just as he’s about to begin living happily-ever-after news breaks that the really bad dude has been let out and will arrive at high noon.  The man is faced with a choice. He can face down the really bad dude and in what amounts to a winner-take-all battle or move on and leave his honor behind. 

Well, AB Hon is no Gary Cooper but finds himself facing his own high noon. Hon came in to clean up a really bad situation. On Friday Apuron called Hon out. There can be only one winner. Will Hon, like Gary Cooper, stand up for what’s right or will he skip and leave his honor behind.  If Hon stands up to the really bad dude, unlike the movie, the townspeople will stand with him. If he doesn’t choose what’s right  not only will the people not stand with him; AB Hon could be caught in a “crossfire.”
