Movie Info

A former lawman must return to his guns when his daughter is threatened in this dark-themed western. Zach Provo (James Coburn) was a notorious outlaw who was finally put behind bars by sheriff Sam Burgade (Charlton Heston), who also killed Provo's wife in the midst of a gun battle. Provo is determined to take his revenge on Burgade, and with the help of a handful of other gunmen, he makes a daring escape from jail and kidnaps Susan (Barbara Hershey), Burgade's daughter. Eager for a final showdown with the now-retired sheriff, Provo threatens Susan with multiple rape if Burgade will not face him in a gunfight, and Burgade is forced to take his guns out of mothballs and confront Provo for the sake of his daughter. The Last Hard Men also stars Michael Thomas Parks, Thalmus Rasulala, and Christopher Mitchum. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Last Hard Men

Charlton Heston plays a retired lawman named Sam Burgade who goes after an escaped bunch of convicts led by a half breed outlaw Zach Provo (James Coburn). The hunt becomes even more personal when Heston's daughter (Barbara Hershey) is kidnapped by Provo who wants to torture Charlton Heston for killing his wife eleven years previous when he was a sheriff. Overall it's an entertaining western flick with some gory and violent scenes including sexual degradation.
