Johnny Yuma (1966) is a spaghetti western starring Mark Damon, Rosalba Neri, and Lawrence Dobkin. The title character earned his name by his exploits in a gunfight in Yuma, Arizona and has no relation to the 1961 The Rebel American television series.
Conniving wife (Neri) has her husband murdered and finds herself butting heads with his heir and nephew Johnny Yuma (Damon). The woman then enlists the assistance of her ex-lover (Dobkin) who is a professional gunslinger to kill Johnny. When she tries to double-cross the ex-lover, he and the heir team up and kill her bodyguards. The lover is killed but just before he dies, he sabotages her water supply. She flees across the desert but is found the next day having died of thirst.
The film's score was composed by female Italian composer Nora Orlandi and arranged and conducted by Robby Poitevin. Two songs "Johnny Yuma" and "That Silent Man" were sung by The Wilder Brothers; John Ireson & Wayne (Wayman) Parham AKA "John and Wayne", a pair of Americans who were popular entertainers in Italy.
