Emotions run high for Valerie French and Ernest Borgnine in Jubal.

A trio of exceptional performances from Glenn Ford (3:10 to Yuma), Ernest Borgnine (Johnny Guitar), and Rod Steiger (On the Waterfront) form the center of 1956’s Jubal, an overlooked Hollywood gem from western genre master Delmer Daves, whose 1957 3:10 to Yuma is also being issued by Criterion this month.

Ford is an honorable itinerant cattleman, befriended and hired by Borgnine’s bighearted ranch owner (Borgnine) despite his unwillingness to talk about his past. When the new hand becomes the target of the flirtatious attentions of the owner’s bored wife (Valerie French) and is entrusted by the boss with a foreman’s responsibilities, his presence at the ranch starts to rankle his shifty fellow cowhand (Steiger). The result is a quite-remarkable showdown of both actions and emotions.
