Description from http://www.IMDb.com: A small-time rancher agrees to hold a captured outlaw who’s awaiting a train to go to court in Yuma. A battle of wills ensues as the outlaw tries to psych out the rancher.
Wife: I really liked this movie. I am not a big fan of Westerns, but I do like good movies. I liked both this and the remake of True Grit. It’s funny that this movie was not categorized as a Western. I loved the portrayal of father and son and the theme of good and bad men. It drew me in. I’ve seen it twice now. It is such a classic. I have not seen the original but want to. Plus, it’s got a great title!
Husband: i liked the movie. It had great storyline. The characters were believable. [OK, my husband said this and I said, “Walter, you say this about every movie. It’s like you don’t care.” To which he responded, “Hmmm, you’re catching on.” Luckily, we only have 2 more movie reviews. Sorry Walter.]
