Three Hours to Kill released November 4, 1954 (USA).
Three Hours to Kill (1954) is an American Western film directed by Alfred L. Werker and starring Dana Andrews and Donna Reed.
Framed for murder, Jim Guthrie (Dana Andrews) barely escapes lynching by the town mob, and becomes a wanted fugitive for three years but returns to find the real killer. His friend, now the sheriff, gives him three hours to find the guilty party.
A New York Times review mused: "It's hard to imagine how Dana Andrews and Donna Reed, the latter still clutching last year's supporting actress Oscar, got involved in the lukewarm little Columbia western ... However, the performances are competent enough."
