I think it´s one of the most realistic movies about the good old west...the coward becomes a hero because of the stories that are told about him...and even people who knew him refuse to face reality and prefere to believe the fairy tales...and that´s probably the reason for the fact that the film flopped...Bronson´s fans didn´t want him to be a loser...they wanted him as an all time hero But I must confess..I was disappointed myself, when I was watching that movie..later..thinking about it irealized that this is a good story about western heroes...
In five hundred years of fighting not one indian turned white.

Hilarious movie, absolutely hilarious! This one I can see time and time again without ever getting tired of it. Out of all the different roles Bronson did, I don't think anything came close to the character Graham Dorsey, a brilliant performance that made me laugh out loud many times. I think Jill did pretty good here as well, they definitely had chemistry, that was never a problem in their movies together.
The soundtrack is good and the song sung by Jill Ireland, Hello and Goodbye, is beautiful and even earned a Golden Globe nomination. Jill didn't do any of the music or writing, so she wasn't included among the ones getting the nod for the work on the song.
You make sounds like you're a mean little ass-kicker... only I ain't convinced. You keep talking and I'm gonna take your head off.
This movie has a great and very interesting plot that is really original. I just don't like giving away anything about the plot of a movie, so I will just say that, the way I see it, it's "Gone With The Wind" meets "The man Who Shot Liberty Valance". This is a romance-drama, with some comedy touches that are necessary in order to justify some hyperbolic parts of the plot. "From Noon Till Three" is in my top 10 list of Bronson best starring vehicles. It is a very good movie that would have been perfect if it had ended 5-6 minutes earlier. This is actually one of the only three romance movies I like. The other two are François Truffaut's "La sirène du Mississipi" and Victor Fleming's "Gone With The Wind".
