This paper is an original exploration of the wide structural, compositional and formal similarities between Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s successful play The Visit (1956) and the post-western film BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK (1955). Locating both works within the con- text of their recent history (World War II) and their own time (1950s), this comparative analysis argues that their particular deconstructions and revisions of the ›national myths‹ of their countries of origin reveal the paradigm of collective guilt as a funda- mental commonality of the pair.
