3:10 to Yuma (1957)
I finally got to seeing the original, thirteen years after seeing the remake. It's pretty solid, still I didn't find it as entertaining. The story is the same, which is a very good thing, but the two main actors aren't as captivating as the ones in the remake.

Director: Elia Kazan
His 13th movie
My 12th movie watched from the director


Wow, Andy Griffith delivers a powerhouse performances that is so good it doesn't matter how many episodes of his self-titled tv show you've you will see him in a whole new light with incredible Elia Kazan film. As good as Griffith is he doesn't matter without an amazing performance by Patricia Neal. Likely her best.
