3:10 to Yuma (1957)

3:10 to Yuma is the 1957 feature film adaptation of the Elmore Leonard short story. The film follows Dan Evans (Van Heflin), a mild-mannered rancher down on his luck who decides to take the job of escorting Ben Wade (Glenn Ford), a notorious criminal until he can be put on the next arriving train out of town. A remake starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale was released in 2007.

Double Barreled Shotgun (Sawed Off)

A double barreled shotgun (Sawed Off) with the barrel sawed down to short length is initially carried by the Bisbee Marshal (Ford Rainey) and used in the capture of Ben Wade (Glenn Ford). The Marshal then turns it over to Dan Evans to carry for the remainder of the movie. A shotgun just like this one is used in the remake.
