Trivia

At the time of its release, many critics commented favorably on director Samuel Fuller's "artistic" decision to concentrate on the feet of the participants in the actual "run of the arrow" rather than showing them in their entirety. In an interview, Fuller said there was a very simple reason for his decision: star Rod Steiger had badly sprained his ankle just before the scene was to be shot and wasn't able to walk, let alone run, so Fuller got one of the Indian extras who was built somewhat like Steiger to run in his place, which is why he shot only feet instead of close-ups or medium shots.

"Yuma" was a psychological and controversial Western
24 September 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"Yuma" was a psychological and controversial Western in its time. Personal conflict losers of the American Civil War produced some resentment. On the other hand, the portrait of Grant's soldiers as bad guys as and opposed to the "savage" Indians are not well accepted.

But Samuel Fuller was right about everything. Rod Steiger did a splendid job credible in his role as "loser" in search of independence and senses to life. On the other hand, viewers appreciate the uniqueness of the bad not the usual. And also welcome the presence of our beloved Sara Montiel, in a role of some importance among the side,

something small, but with dignity. The director Samuel Fuller was considered military chief. Maybe your participation in the European war it marked tendencies. However, this is not a movie "military" in the strict sense of the term, and although there is violence and blood due to requirements of the script, the film explores the depths more personal than collective disputes and is more interested in the respect or breach of the commitments that for medals or trophies won in battle.

It is excellent race sequence "run the arrow" can qualify as excellent photography and the performances of the actors, Brian Keith, Charles Bronson, Ralph Meeker and especially the splendid Rod Steiger.
