Fond of Fonda?

3:10 to Yuma tops box office sales, taking in $14 million its opening week. A remake of the 1957 classic, 3:10 to Yuma stars Christian Bale as a struggling rancher who agrees to help escort a notorious outlaw, played by Russell Crowe, to the train station. With the outlaw's accomplices in pursuit, the journey becomes a test of the rancher's courage and resolve. Peter Fonda (pictured right as McElroy) plays a supporting role as Byron McElroy, a bounty hunter who shares history with the film's antagonist (Crowe).

Acting is a Fonda family tradition - Peter Fonda is the son of Henry Fonda (Grapes of Wrath), sister of Jane Fonda (On Golden Pond), and father of Bridget Fonda (Single White Female). Jane Fonda is the mother of actor Troy Garity (Barbershop).
