Westerns frequently refer to Yuma. Bad guys come on-screen, and we find they just came from Yuma. Yuma is in the hottest part of the Arizona desert and its state prison is a hell hole from which nothing good can come and from which no one ever escapes. DelmerDavies’3:10 to Yuma (1957) is based upon this common knowledge about Yuma, Arizona.
