12.04.2015 | Coming Soon: Five short documentaries on Delmer Daves’s »3:10 to Yuma« and »Cowboy«

Production just wrapped on Fiction Factory’s latest slate of documentaries: Last January, Robert Fischer went to Los Angeles to film interviews on two of Delmer Daves’s best Westerns, 3:10 TO YUMA (1957), starring Glenn Ford and Van Heflin,  and COWBOY (1958), starring Ford and Jack Lemmon. Michael Daves, Delmer’s son, reminisces about his father in DELMER DAVES BY MICHAEL DAVES (two parts).

Phedon Papamichael, A.S.C., the award-winning cinematographer who lensed James Mangold’s 2007 YUMA remake starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, discusses both of these adaptations of a story by Elmore Leonard in THE SHADOWS OF NOIR.

Veteran cinematographer Richard H. Kline, A.S.C., who was an assistant cameraman on both of these Delmer Daves Westerns, talks about director of photography Charles Lawton, Jr., A.S.C.,  in CAPTURING THE WEST: A TRIBUTE TO CHARLES LAWTON, JR. BY RICHARD H. KLINE. Last but not least, Jan-Christopher Horak, author of the book »Saul Bass: Anatomy of Film Design«, analyzes Bass’s credit sequence for COWBOY in the documentary HOW TO BRAND A FILM: JAN-CHRISTOPHER HORAK ON SAUL BASS AND COWBOY. All coming to DVD and blu-ray later this spring.
