Synopsis:
After a hold-up and a murder, outlaw Ben Wade (Glenn Ford) and his gang are captured. Wade's men break out of jail and wait for a chance to rescue him. The authorities suspect that a daring escape plan is underway, so they look for a guard to escort Wade by train to Yuma to stand trial. The marshal offers a bounty and Dan Evans (Van Heflin), a poor rancher hit hard by a crippling drought, takes the job. His wife pleads with him to save his own life by letting Wade go free, but for Evans, it's a matter of principle as well as money. He takes Wade and begins the dangerous trek to the station.

Classic Western - 3:10 to Yuma review by GI

Spoiler Alert
13/04/2021

Similarly themed to High Noon (1952) this tense, revisionist western is a classic of the genre. Shot in stark black and white at a time when colour was prevalent especially in westerns it creates a parched, desperate landscape that matches the growing tension of the story. After a robbery outlaw Ben Wade (Glenn Ford) lingers over a prostitute in the nearby town and gets caught. Expecting his large gang will come to free him a reward is offered for a volunteer to get him on the 3.10 train to Yuma prison. Broke and struggling rancher Dan (Van Heflin) needs the money and despite his wife begging him to stay out of the matter Dan takes on the job. The long wait for the train to arrive while Ben's gang congregate around the town ready to free him is only the beginning Dan also has the long walk to the station to overcome. The use of time to increase the sense of danger and the gradual desertion of allies makes for a top class drama here. This is a basic tale of good vs evil and ultimately a slice of redemption too. It's not an action western by any means but certainly one that began a trend in a more darker vision of the genre in the vein of a film noir. The dynamic between Ford and Heflin is superb and makes the film so good as they spar with each other and debate their respective morals. A stone cold classic and definitely a film every cinephile should make sure they see.
