Johnny Yuma [The Rebel] (introduction)
Synopsis
In the summer of 1865, Confederate war veteran Johnny Yuma returns to his small western town. He finds his father, the sheriff, has been killed and the murderers are now running the town. After taking his father's sawed-off shotgun, Yuma concocts a plan that results in the killing of the men who shot his father. Yuma then leaves town, because staying would remind him of his father. He then meets up with the proprietor of a traveling medicine show, who later is framed as a killer by a gang of hoodlums.
