3:10 to Yuma script
3:10 to Yuma (2007)
Synopsis: Outlaw Ben Wade (Russell Crowe) terrorizes 1800s Arizona, especially the Southern Railroad, until he is finally captured. Wade must be brought to trial, so Dan Evans (Christian Bale), the owner of a drought-stricken ranch, volunteers to escort him to the train. Along the trail, a grudging respect forms between the men, but danger looms at every turn, and the criminal's men are in pursuit.

DAN:

The herd is over the ridge by now.

Get cleaned up.

INT./EXT. FOLLOWING DAN -- EVANS RANCH -- DAYBREAK

Dan yanks open a drawer and grabs a shirt. His arms and chest

streaked in SOOT... Out the bedroom window the sun is

creeping over the rocky horizon.

His eyes fall upon a beautiful ANTIQUE BROOCH in a drawer.

He examines it. It is gold. And he pockets it and turns,

finding himself looking at William, watching him.

William turns away, and crosses to his bedroom.

Dan moves to a basin at the back of the house.

ALICE:

You lied to me, Dan.

Dan turns to face Alice.

ALICE (CONT’D)

You told me we made payments to

Hollander.

DAN:

We did. Some.

(off look, heading inside)

How do you think we bought feed,

Alice? Three months water. Medicine

for Mark. I had a choice between

our family and paying it down.

ALICE:

We’re supposed to make decisions

together.

DAN:

Would you have made it different?

ALICE:

Dan.

DAN:

We can’t make it rain together. Or

turn dust into grass. And we can’t

hold back winter. It’s too bad the

doctors at Essex saved so much of

my leg. I read the pension act

pays by the pound now.

Dan leans against the wall, pulling on his boots.

Tears come to Alice’s eyes.

DAN:

Stop looking at me like that.

Mark appears in the hall. Dan crosses back to his bedroom,

pulling on a clean shirt.

MARK:

(as Dan passes)

...You gonna tell the Marshal what

those men did?

WILLIAM:

(from his bedroom)

Marshal ain’t doing shit.

ALICE:

William.

DAN:

First thing I’m gonna do, Mark, is

take you boys and round up the

herd. ...Then I’m going to town.

CLOSE ON-- WILLIAM in his room, gettting dressed, listening

with jaundice as his father reassures Mark. He pockets a deck

of cards and his dime novel.
