3.0 out of 5 stars An old-fashioned western
Yuma needs taming. Any lawman who is sent in gets run out of the territory in a hail of lead. So the governor sends in a fearless US Marshal. The lawman immediately shoots up one of the King brothers, the ringleaders of the violence, and arrests the other. But then the arrested man is broken out of jail only to be shot...

5.0 out of 5 stars YUMA (1970), 10 Jan. 2009

This review is from: Yuma [DVD] [1970] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
United States Marshal Dave Harmon (Clint Walker) is appointed by the governor to bring order to the territory, known for running off any lawman who dares to bring the rowdies to heel. Upon his arrival in Yuma, he shoots one of the King brothers. The other brother is put in jail. Harmon checks into the Yuma Hotel and intends to stay. Then 2 men release the other brother from jail and shoot him in his back in the middle of the street.
Harmon goes after them, as one of the men is Capt white from the army. Harmon runs into the Indians, who don't seem to get the beef, they were promised according to the treaty. Older brother Arche King is told , his younger brothers are dead and the Marshal killed them. Trader Decker gets these cattle and sells them for profit.
Then Capt White is found dead. Harmon takes the body to jail. The major of the army and Arche King will only wait for one day for the Marshal to solve the murders. The movie has been retrieved from national archieve, hence some loss of clarity, colour and sound quality.
Clint Walker acts well as the big Marshal and the director Ted Post keeps the story interesting. Will Marshal Harmon get Decker? Who is the real Master behind all the murders? Will Arche King wait? Will the Indians help Harmon? Will the army trust Harmon?
Watch and ENJOY. (ENGLAND. UK)

Clint Walker excels as the lawman in this short, low-budget western that feels as if could have been made several decades earlier and which is very much different to the style of westerns that were being made at this time, avoiding gore and cynicism. What the film does have is an involving story that mixes interesting characters, plenty of incident, and a worthwhile mystery mixed in with all the usual gun-toting action. It's not a classic by any means, but it's perfect lazy Sunday afternoon fare.

great movie, another geat performance by Clint Walker..the DVD is obviously taken from a tv showing as station logo appears on screen a few times but doesn't distract from the story..picture is about 8/10 I would think.sound is perfect...a very good story..well worth adding to anyones collection who loves westerns

Love this western, always been a Clint Walker fan, however film is not too great, tends to shimmer a lot, possibly bad transfer but still well watchable.
