Yuma is a 1971 western TV-film, starring Clint Walker, directed by Ted Post and shot in Old Tucson. The film was originally a television pilot that appeared on the ABC Movie of the Week.[1]


Dave Harmon (Clint Walker), a former lieutenant in the U.S. Army is sent to Yuma as the new United States Marshal. His wife was raped and son killed and the only description of the criminals responsible was they were wearing army uniforms. He served in several locations as a sheriff and all were near an army post.

Harmon becomes Marshal of Yuma, a city with an army post and an Indian reservation near by. Marshal Harmon comes into town and two drunk rabble rousers, the King brothers are causing trouble. One is immediately killed by the new town marshal and the other locked up in the town jail. The second brother is murdered by one of the King brothers' cattle hands in an effort to get the third King brother to kill the Marshal. The murderer tricked an army Captain to coming with him to the jail. The plot thickens with corruption and intrigue.
