One of the best of the 1950s classic Westerns, 3:10 TO YUMA stars Glenn Ford as outlaw Ben Wade, and Felicia Farr as the bar girl who falls in love with him. After a holdup and killing, Wade and his gang are captured. Wade's men break out of jail, and now wait for the chance to rescue him. The authorities suspect that a daring escape plan is in the make, so they look for a guard to escort Wade by train to Yuma to stand trial. The marshal offers a bounty, and Dan Evans (Heflin), a poor rancher hit hard by a crippling drought, takes on 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.
Nominated: Best Film from any Source, 1958 BAFTA Awards
