From Noon Till Three Reviews
A group of four robbers stop at a house on the outskirts of a small town in hopes of stealing a horse. The woman of the house claims she doesn't have any horses and the robbers send a man in to check in her barn. He comes out and reports she does not have any horses. As punishment, the man is told he has to stay behind while the three robbers go into town and survey the scene. While the robbers are gone, three hours, the woman of the house and left robber fall in love; unfortunately, the three robbers in town get caught and sentenced to a hanging. The robber at the house is convinced by the woman of the house to go save the men. He is captured and sent to jail and the woman of the house writes a book about their love story. After he gets out of jail, can the robber and woman of the house hook back up?
"I'm willing to take a chance."
"So am I."
Frank Gilroy, director of The Gig, The Luckiest Man in the World, Once in Paris, Desperate Characters, The Turning Point of Jim Mallow, and Nero Wolfe, delivers From Noon till Three. The storyline for this picture is actually very interesting, well written, and well throughout. The characters, script, and acting are all excellent and the cast includes Charles Bronson, Jill Ireland, Douglas Fowley, and Anne Ramsey.
"Where is everybody?"
"I don't know and I don't care as long as they stay there."
I DVR'd this classic Charles Bronson picture off cable recently. I am a fan of Bronson despite his very inconsistent resume. There are a lot of really bad films on Bronson's resume, but this is not one of them. This is actually a very smart and creative picture for the western genre. I strongly recommend seeing this picture and adding it to your DVD collection if you are a fan of the genre.

Still waiting for this one on DVD as well.
