The movie is full of worthy morality. This movie goes to my stack for the grandchildren. I would like to see it used in high schools.
The Criterion image quality is second to none. The mono sound is crisp and clear. Just an outstanding release! A definite keeper that bears repeated viewing. Thank you, Criterion!

As far as this Blu-ray goes, Criterion has done a respectable job here. The wonderful 4K restoration was supervised by Sony's Grover Crisp last year to coincide with the film's entry into the National Film Registry. Featuring superb detail that showcases the film's crisp cinematography, every visual aspect of "3:10 to Yuma" has been rendered flawlessly in 1080p. A new 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track is also included along with the original Mono mix, so purists and those looking for more surround activity will have their choice of presentations.
The only slightly disappointing aspect of this release is its lack of meaty extras, somewhat atypical for a Criterion release. Only a pair of short (10-15 minute) interviews with author Elmore Leonard and Glenn Ford's son are included, but they're entertaining and informative. So while this release is definitely overpriced a bit---even by Criterion's standards---fans of the film should really appreciate the work that went into it.
about gunplay and chase scenes.
Led by a great performance by Glenn Ford, going way against type as a low key, but highly charismatic, sexy bad guy,
who its hard to hate. And he's almost matched by a jittery Van Heflin as a down-on-his-luck rancher who agrees to bring
the very dangerous Ford to the titular train to be taken to prison. Heflin doesn't take the job out of any great moral belief,
but just because he desperately needs the $200 to have some shot of keeping his cattle alive and his family fed.
Beautifully shot, keeping the open feel of the south-west for the first act, the real climax of the film is a 30 minute set
piece in a hotel room that still manages to feel cinematic as Ford tries to gently, almost comically, bribe and woo Heflin
into letting him go, promising far more money than the $200 Heflin is being paid. And we see just how tempting that
offer is to Heflin, and how confusing doing the "right" thing can be.
A truly tense film. Its flaws or dated touches fade beneath its great images, sly dialogue, forceful direction, complex
characters, and 1st rate acting.
