Trivia

This film, along with the equally allegorical High Noon (1952), was a deciding factor in making Howard Hawks create Rio Bravo (1959), a return to more optimistic, less revisionist Westerns. See more »

Goofs

When Wade is handcuffed and set in the stagecoach, his jacket is completely unbuttoned, and remains like this in all shots he appears, until he step down on the Dan's ranch. When he walks toward the Dan's house, his jacket is completely buttoned. Once inside the house, the jacket appears in part unbuttoned. See more »

A classic suspense film that works both within and beyond its 'western genre'.
3 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A well crafted film. Superbly paced, composed and edited with hardly a frame out of place. From the very moment the film hits the screen with the 'Columbia' statue and haunting soundtrack you are held throughout. The lead actors, Glenn Ford and Van Heflin are perfectley cast with strong support from Leora Dana, Henry Jones, Robert Emhart, Felicia Farr, Guy Wilkinson et al. This is a film when all the elements that make a good movie - script,music,photography,acting,editing,direction - come together as one and excel. Delmer Daves,Director, has clearley been influenced by other film-makers; there appear to be brief references to Battleship Potemkin and Bicycle Thieves among others. 3.10 to Yuma is a classic suspense film, that works within and beyond its 'western genre'. It remains to be seen what James Mangold, Director(Walk The Line etc.) and his team make of a proposed re-make scheduled for 2007. They will have to work very hard indeed to come close to the quality of the original production. A good start would be to retain the Frankie Laine soundtrack performance.
