3:10 to Yuma

N.p. Screen Gems Inc., 1962. Three vintage studio still photographs from the 1957 film, struck for 1962 re-release.

Based on Elmore Leonard's 1953 short story "Three-Ten to Yuma."

One of the first revisionist Westerns, with a classicism that stands up to "High Noon," but an cynical attitude toward good and evil that was years ahead of its time. Glenn Ford's ambivalent character from "Gilda" is transplanted to a Western setting, placed against Van Heflin's warmer but still hard boiled persona, with unforgettable results.

Shot on location in Arizona.

8 x 10 inches. Near Fine, with some faint creasing in margins.

National Film Registry. Criterion Collection 657.
