Yuma / American Southwest …

22 Oct

Well … it’s 3:10 … and I’m in Yuma. And it’s dang hot here. My Canadian skin ain’t used to this heat.

I’m also tantalizingly close to Tombstone and Deadwood … but I won’t be able to get there on this trip. Next time.

My real purpose for being here is to take advantage of the cheap dental services across the border – in Mexico. Where’s Doc Holliday when you need him?

Only here for 4 days … then I’m off to Sedona for 3 days. Never as much as I like, but better than nothin’.

I recall the original 3:10 to Yuma (1957) with Glenn Ford and Van Heflin to be pretty good movie. Ford and Heflin both made several good Westerns. The Russel Crowe and Christian Bales (2007) version of 3:10 to Yuma is pretty good too – but neither will make MFW list. Both are worth a see or two though and I want to give them both another look.

I gotta review Ford’s Westerns – he could well ride into my MFW Cowboy Hall of Fame.

Onward …
