Fran Pheasant-Kelly argues for the status of Delmer Daves as an exemplary filmmaker by offering an in-depth analysis of 3:10 to Yuma. She considers the film in relation to its aesthetics, critical reception, and cultural significance, illuminating Daves’ involvement throughout. Whilst acknowledging the film as one among several significant Westerns Daves directed, her primary focus remains on 3:10 to Yuma as she tried to explain its cultural significance. Overall, her analysis examines the film’s textual aspects, archival material in respect of its critical reception, and its historical contexts. In so doing, she deeply enriches our understanding of the film’s significance in relation to the Hollywood Western genre as a whole.
