1971 | Western | Feature


Yuma (1971) deals with the new Marshall of Yuma who is forced to deal with the two brothers of a powerful cattleman, shooting one in self defense and jailing the other. There's no bluster and loud show of force here; he just does his job, quietly and well. Yuma is an obvious series pilot TV movie that wasn't picked up, most likely due to the fact that TV westerns were on the way down. A western typical of early seventies TV fodder. Clint Walker is great, and so is the rest of the cast, and the plot is very well done, as were several of the westerns made during that general time.

Yuma (1971) Review:

There are sub-plots which lend the central character depth and personality that some of the older westerns did not always achieve. And there's enough shoot-em-up to keep it exciting, although Harmon displays a calm control of each situation that many of us would envy today. Very good all-around family entertainment.
