Movie Info

Written and directed by Frank D. Gilroy, this Western casts Charles Bronson as Graham Dorsey, a two-bit Western outlaw who has a three-hour affair with lonely Amanda Starbuck (Jill Ireland). When Dorsey is reported killed, Starbuck capitalizes on her liaison by building up the "legend" of the supposed deceased outlaw. Soon Dorsey has become an icon, glorified in song, fable, and dime novels. Imagine Starbuck's discomfort when he turns up very much alive, and extremely upset at being turned into Amanda's own private cottage industry. At the end, Dorsey isn't even left with his own identity. This picture is somewhat unconventional for a Western, downplaying violence in favor of characterization and dark humor.

Critic Reviews for From Noon Till Three

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

The movie opens unsteadily and takes too long to close, but the things that happen between noon and three give us new ideas about Bronson's possibilities.

October 30, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Plays less like a Western and more like a spoof of a Western.

December 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Charlie Bronson is in a tongue-in-cheek Western spoof comedy, and it is hilarious! Not only is the picture funny, Bronson is screams!

October 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Based on a set of excellent characters, the comedy develops with ease and a good rhythm. It covers the old themes of the Western in an original style that eschews the clichés of the genre. [Full Review in Spanish]

A laughable piece of idiocy.

July 9, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the most unappealing offbeat romantic/comedy Westerns ever.
