When stubborn farmer, Dan Evans (Ven Heflin), attempts to bring wanted criminal, Ben Wade (Glenn Ford) to the authorities in Yuma and collect the reward, he's in for quite a challenge. Desperate, the captive criminal offers the poor farmer $10,000 to set him free. While waiting for the train, the two men engage in a brutal battle of wills and as Evans eludes Wade's gang of miscreant thugs, he must fight his own moral battle and catch the 3:10 to Yuma. A poignant and chilling western, 3:10 TO YUMA evokes more thought and emotion with its timing and clever scripting than most traditional shot gun-riddled Westerns ever achieve. Director Delmer Daves teams up with pulp writer Elmore Leonard (who would go on to script GET SHORTY and JACKIE BROWN) to deliver this sharp and biting western classic.
