    3:10 TO YUMA - Blu-Ray & DVD Editions
    In this beautifully shot and acted, psychologically complex western, Van Heflin (Shane) is a mild-mannered cattle rancher who takes on the task of shepherding a captured outlaw, played with cucumber-cool charisma by Glenn Ford (The Big Heat), to the train that will take him to prison. This apparently simple plan turns into a nerve-racking cat-and-mouse game that will test each man’s particular brand of honor. Based on a story by Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty),3:10 to Yuma is a thrilling, humane action movie, directed by the supremely talented studio filmmaker Delmer Daves (Jubal) with intense feeling and precision. 1957 • 92 minutes • Black & White • Monaural • 1.85:1 aspect ratio SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES • New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition • Alternate 5.1 surround soundtrack, presented in DTS-HD Master Audio on the Blu-ray edition • New interviews with author Elmore Leonard and Glenn Ford’s son and biographer, Peter Ford • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Kent Jones

    Thank goodness! I didn't like the remake and less so after each viewing of this great film. Crawdaddy

    Surprise, surprise. Three cheers for Criterion. 3:10 TO YUMA and JUBAL (1956) are not just classic westerns, but superior films. Both directed by Delmer Daves and yet completely different from one another in subject matter and approach. I don't know how Criterion discovered these, but they zeroed in on two of the most interesting westerns of the 1950s. They're going to look very, very. No doubt in my mind. Totally and completely bought. Some old notes after watching the Columbia DVD:

    Both Daves, The Last Wagon and The Hanging Tree deserve a quality blu-ray release. They are both highly intelligent and perceptive Western films.

    I look forward to this one. I didn't mind the remake, but this is a heck of a film. Nice pairing with Jubal which I will blind buy.
