Re your comment below:

"And speaking of film and literature side by side, I recently caught the movie of _3:10 to Yuma_ on television . . ."

Which one did you see? The original with Glenn Ford and Van Heflin or the recent remake?

IIRC, the original stuck with Leonard's story much more closely. This doesn't necessarily mean it was better than the remake (which was certainly true to the spirit, if not the letter, of Leonard's original yarn), but it was, as I recall, a closer adaptation.
