No Escape From Chinese History - 3:10 To Yuma




I noted the other day that my relaxation still sees me getting hit by China history related stuff – my attempt to escape it all watching the Western Appaloosa the other day failed.


So I tried again and picked another Western, 3.10 to Yuma with Russell Crowe and Christian Bale (yes, I know, the kid out of Empire of the Sun). Of course I should have realised – the old West in the 1870s, a train and a railway are obviously going to figure given the title and yet I was still surprised when Russell Crowe rides into a railway navvies camp and is suddenly surrounded by Chinese railroad workers. I should have seen it coming!!

Still a good movie - a small-time rancher agrees to hold a captured outlaw who's awaiting a train to go to court in Yuma. A battle of wills ensues as the outlaw tries to psych out the rancher. Didn’t have any insights into Chinese railroad construction crew lives – but it was interesting to watch all the same.

My quest now is to try and find a film without a China reference!
