Lawman Yify

Storyline:   "Lawman" is a 1971 Western film directed by Michael Winner. The film is set in the American West and stars Burt Lancaster as the titular lawman, Jered Maddox. The story is set in the town of Sabbath, which has long been a haven for lawbreakers and outlaws. Sabbath's lawlessness has persisted unchecked for years, but when an accidental shooting leads to the death of an innocent bystander, Marshal Jered Maddox arrives in town to bring the responsible parties to justice. Maddox is a no-nonsense and principled lawman who is determined to uphold the law, even at the cost of lives. He demands that the town's powerful cattle baron, Vincent Bronson (played by Lee J. Cobb), turn over the men responsible for the shooting. Bronson, however, is not inclined to hand over his men, and tensions escalate as Maddox stands firm in his pursuit of justice.

"Lawman" is characterized by its exploration of themes related to law and order, justice, and the consequences of violence. The film portrays a morally complex world in which the pursuit of justice can lead to further bloodshed and tragedy. Burt Lancaster delivers a memorable performance as Marshal Maddox, a character who embodies the archetype of the principled lawman willing to uphold the law, even in the face of resistance and danger. The film's supporting cast includes prominent actors like Robert Ryan and Robert Duvall. "Lawman" is considered a noteworthy entry in the Western genre and is appreciated for its nuanced portrayal of morality and its exploration of the complexities of enforcing the law in a lawless land. It reflects the changing tone and themes of Western films in the early 1970s, moving away from traditional heroics and presenting a more morally ambiguous view of the Old West.
