      Trivia
      * Average Shot Length = ~6.4 seconds. Median Shot Length = ~6.6 seconds.

      * James Mangold, who directed the 2007 remake, was sufficiently influenced by the film to name the lead character Heflin in his 1997 film Cop Land (1997), after Van Heflin, the star of this film.

      * This film, along with the equally allegorical High Noon (1952), was a deciding factor in making Howard Hawks turn out Rio Bravo (1959), a return to simpler, less revisionist Westerns.

      Goofs
      * Continuity: When Wade is handcuffed and set in the stagecoach, his jacket is completely unbuttoned, and remains like this in all shots he appears, until he step down on the Dan's ranch. When he walks toward the Dan's house, his jacket is completely buttoned. Once inside the house, the jacket appears in part unbuttoned.

      * Continuity: Inside the hotel room, when Wade fights with Dan trying to disarm him, Wade falls with his back on the bed and his hat rolls a little ways from him. When they take a close up shot of Wade, his hat is almost completely on his head. When Dan orders Wade to get up, they cut to a medium shot and once again, his hat is way over on bed again.

      * Revealing mistakes: As the bad guy posse rides into Contention City, in a couple of scenes you'll note seven men on horseback. However, when Ben Wade looks out the window to talk to his gang, there are eight men present. At the same time, one of the men in the hotel states to Butterfield that he counted seven men, while Wade remarks to Evans after one of his men is shot, 'it's now one against seven'.

    • Re: Classic Movie Westerns- 3:10 to Yuma (1957)

      3:10 to Yuma is a 1957 American Western film starring
      Glenn Ford and Van Heflin and directed by Delmer Daves.

      The film was based on a 1953 short story by Elmore Leonard.
      The film is about a drought-impoverished rancher who takes on the risky job
      of taking a notorious outlaw to justice.
      In 2012, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry
      by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant"

      The title song, "3:10 to Yuma", was by George Duning (music), with lyrics by Ned Washington
      and was sung at the beginning and end of the film by Frankie Laine.
      He recorded it for Columbia Records in 1957 (with the Jimmy Carroll Orchestra)
      and in 1960 (with the Johnny Williams Orchestra).
      It was also recorded by Sandy Denny in 1967.

      The film was remade in 2007, directed by James Mangold
      and starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale.

      Any movie that starts with Frankie Laine,
      singing 3:10 To Yuma, has to be good, and it was.
      A gripping story brilliantly directed by Delmer Daves.
      It's stars Glen Ford and Van Heflin,
      played good credible parts, in front
      of scenery that was spectacular.

      The remake in 2007, is also critically acclaimed.
      We had discussion about that movie here:-
