Dave Harmon is a United States Marshall, who has been sent by the governor to the territory of Yuma. It seems that the law is not welcomed there; every Marshall that's been sent has been chased out.

Henry Fonda stars in this nontraditional Western based on E.L. Doctorow's novel as broken-down sheriff Will Blue, who tries to defend his town from a mysterious outlaw.
E.L. Doctorow's nontraditional Western comes to life in this 1967 adaptation from director Burt Kennedy and Henry Fonda. Fonda stars as aging sheriff Will Blue who finds his resolve faltering in the face of unrepentant evil. A nameless drifter (Aldo Ray as the 'Man from Bodie') terrorizes the aptly named town of Hard Times, freely killing, and raping. Finally, he decides to burn the town down as a parting gift and a reminder of their sheriff's inability to protect it.
What do you call a cowboy with his brains kicked out? A bronc rider. Ben Jones and Howdy Lewis are bronc riders. Glenn Ford and Henry Fonda portray the pair who are cowboy enough to do just about any job, except for the one at hand. That job: Saddle a clever, ornery, blaze-faced roan named Old Fooler and make him as gentle as a milk-pen calf. Can't be done, and that gets the cowpokes to thinking. Maybe they can make a dollar or two by wagering that no one at the rodeo can stay atop him either.
John Wayne stars as Cattle baron George Washington McLintock, who fights with his wife, his daughter, and political land-grabbers, finally "taming" them all.
After his wife leaves him based on trumped-up adultery charges, a wronged man comes to the aid of a beautiful widow -- much to his wife's chagrin.
A woman presumed dead for five years returns from a desert island to find that her husband has just remarried and is on his honeymoon.
Wayne shows off his funny side in this 1963 western, a comedy inspired by The Taming of the Shrew. Starring as wealthy cattle baron G.W. McLintock, Wayne shows a real sense of comic timing in several scenes filled with slapstick humor. After his wife (Maureen O'Hara) and daughter leave him for the East, McLintock attempts to win them back. The dynamics between O'Hara and Wayne are the strong suit of this film, the actors having worked together previously on The Quiet Man. As this is by no means a revisionist western, McLintock's chauvinistic attempts to "tame" his wife fit within the problematic ideology of the larger western genre. The ultimate example of this comes at the end of the film when McLintock settles his marital dispute by publicly "spanking" his wife in what is now a notorious cinematic moment.
