Not Rated | | Drama, Thriller, Western
Broke small-time rancher Dan Evans is hired by the stagecoach line to put big-time captured outlaw leader Ben Wade on the 3:10 train to Yuma but Wade's gang tries to free him.
This film, along with the equally allegorical High Noon (1952), was a deciding factor in Howard Hawks deciding to make Rio Bravo (1959), a return to more optimistic, less revisionist Westerns.
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...
At about 27:30 when the two townsmen pull back by a wall when shot at by Charlie Prince, you can see the "stone" wall flutter as if it were made out cloth or rubber.
