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:
Revealing mistakes: As the bad guy posse rides into Contention City, in a couple of scenes you'll note seven men on horseback. However, when Ben Wade looks out the window to talk to his gang, there are eight men present. At the same time, one of the men in the hotel states to Butterfield that he counted seven men, while Wade remarks to Evans after one of his men is shot, 'it's now one against seven'.See more »
Quotes:

Mr. Butterfield, Stage Line Owner:Let me warn you - I am Mr. Butterfield; this is my line, these are my passengers. You bother any of them, I'll hound you from here to kingdom come.
Ben Wade:Mr. Butterfield, we don't mean to bother anybody - we just mean to get what's under that tarpaulin up there, that's all

The greatest Western of all time?, 29 August 2004
Author: johnbach1978 from UNITED KINGDOM

The 3:10 to Yuma must surely be in any fan of the 5o's Western genre top 10. Glenn Ford is at his best as outlaw and gang leader Ben wade, it does not take him long to shoot someone, ride into town and then proceed to chat the local barmaid up. When captured he goes one better and makes a play for his armed escorts wife! Van Heflin is superb and worthy of an Oscar in his role as the hard up rancher making a pay day out of being Fords captor.

The tension that mounts as Heflin & Ford wait for the train to arrive at the station whilst surrounded by Fords gang is unbearable, and the twist at the end is both unexpected and brilliant in its delivery.
