"Three-Ten to Yuma" is a short story written by Elmore Leonard that was first published in Dime Western Magazine, a 1950s pulp magazine, in March 1953. It is one of the very few Western stories that has been adapted to the screen twice, in 1957 and in 2007.

Here are a few helpful links:

The wiki for the short story.

The imdb for the 2007 film… and just for fun, the imdb for the 1957 film (which we reference but don’t dig too deeply into).
