Trivia:
In three scenes Glenn Ford whistles the theme music for the movie, which means that composers Ned Washington and George Duning wrote it early in production. Usually the music in modern films is added after filming has ended.See more »

A classic suspense film that works both within and beyond its 'western genre'., 3 March 2006
Author: information-22 from United Kingdom

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.
