Last Hunt Reviews
Set in the 1880s, the story of a veteran buffalo hunter (played by Stewart Granger) who is tired of all the killing. Unfortunately he meets a man (played by Robert Taylor) who revels in killing. A clash is inevitable.
Not your average western, especially for one made in the 1950s. Tackles topics like racism and the treatment of indigenous Americans, environmental issues (mass killing of buffalo), sadism and obsession.
Quite dark for a western, especially towards the end when we see the effects of all the killing, waste and obsession on the characters' mental stability.
On top of all this, has the usual good western stuff - gunfights, barroom brawls and a bit of romance.
Great work from Stewart Granger and Robert Taylor in the lead roles.
