From Noon till Three is an offbeat and amiable, if uneven and structurally awkward, western comedy. Frank D. Gilroy scripted his novel and directed the good-looking production.
Film stars Charles Bronson as an amateur bank robber whose mistaken death supports a worldwide romantic legend, and Jill Ireland, beneficiary of the fantasy.
Bronson is a frontier drifter recruited into the bank robber gang headed by Douglas V. Fowley. En route, Bronson has a dream of a heist, later spoiled by an aware townsfolk. That’s enough for him to stay behind at widow Ireland’s prairie home when his horse goes lame.
He and the widow evolve from antagonism to the beginning of love, when news arrives that the Fowley gang is caught.
