About the Movie

Robert Taylor (Quo Vadis) and Stewart Granger (The Prisoner of Zenda) team up in this "grim, fierce, raw-boned outdoor fare" (Variety) filmed on location in rugged Custer State Park, North Dakota. Charlie Gilson (Taylor), a mean-spirited hunter, joins reserved Sandy McKenzie (Granger) on a great government-sanctioned buffalo hunt that will keep the buffalo population under control and make the men rich. Joining them are Woodfoot, an old one-legged skinner (Lloyd Nolan) and Jimmy (Russ Tamblyn) a half-Indian boy. But trouble begins to break the team apart when Charlie kills a group of Indians whom he accuses of stealing his horses. Charlie's subsequent mistreatment of the lone survivors – an Indian woman and her child – forces Sandy to realize that his partner is consumed with hate…and that he enjoys killing more than just buffalo. "Raw, real and rugged" (L.A. Examiner), The Last Hunt is so intense and powerful that its stark images will stay with you long after the film ends.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It does seem to take Mr. Granger an awfully long time to get around to freezing out Mr. Taylor. That's the way sermons sometimes go. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: One of [Brooks'] better efforts. – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Russell Harlan's admirably low-key cinematography complements writer/director Brooks' down-beat tone. – Time Out, Jun 24, 2010
