3:10 to Yuma managed to take the first place in the box office this weekend. For some reason this made me curious about the original 3:10 to Yuma and I decided to seek out an image from the poster for that film. I was very happy to find the one above and the one below on movieposter.com.
It’s interesting to compare the new posters with the original ones. Despite going for an “old times” look, the new posters are obviously much sleeker and sharper looking. This once again reminds me that there is often a big difference between what we may register as looking like something from the past and what these things actually looked like.
