I always feel a little bad when I've only seen one film as it would be the best by default, but in this case 3:10 to Yuma really was great. :)

Enjoyed A Summer Place. It's total soap opera.

Wanted to get a recommendation for further Daves films but so few have seen so little (and that red Dark Passage implies too great a disparity in opinions to help me). So I bought Jubal on the strength of such a fine cast Ford, Borgnine, Steiger, Bronson, Elam. Looks like Antares would agree.
