Return of the Gunfighter is a 1967 American Western film directed by James Neilson and starring Robert Taylor, Chad Everett and Ana Martín. It did not have a theatrical release, and was instead shown on television. Old Tucson and Sabino canyon are areas in the film.
In 1878, an old gunslinger Ben Wyatt (Robert Taylor) is released from prison after five years. He meets Lee Sutton (Chad Everett), who is on the run for killing a man in a gunfight. Wyatt finds that his close friends the Domingos have been killed. He takes Sutton, who is weak from being wounded in the gunfight, to find Anisa Domingo (Ana Martin), the daughter of Wyatt's slain friends. Wyatt agrees to let Anisa help him find her parents’ killers.
The three ride toward Lordsburg. Sutton leaves them to go to his family's ranch. He and Anisa say goodbye but hope to see each other again. With Anisa's help, Wyatt finds the men responsible and they are Sutton's brothers. Wyatt kills one in a street gunfight in self-defense.
Lee finds that his older brother, Clay (Lyle Bettger), killed Anisa's parents. Lee leaves the ranch for Lordsburg to free Wyatt, who is in jail for the gunfight. Together, they defeat Clay and his thugs to save Anisa from being killed as the only witness to Clay's murders.
