Director Fred Zinnemann's iconic Western plays like a Johnny Cash song, with its heroic man in black and a foreboding train a-comin', rollin' round the bend in High Noon (Ultimate Collector's Edition). No surprise, then, that politicians from Ike to Dubya have idolized Will Kane (Cooper), the stoic lawman who refuses to run from a fight, even after he's abandoned by the friends he's sworn to protect. EXTRAS ''Inside High Noon'' highlights the film's political metaphors and includes interviews with fan Bill Clinton, but otherwise it's a virtual repackaging of the 2002 disc. B
