Editorial Reviews

They called him the Butcher of Shiloh. Personally responsible for the wrongful deaths of 1500 men,Colonel Frank Marston (Robert Preston, Northwest Mounted Police) has been exiled to the farthest reaches of the American frontier. Driven insane by disgrace, Marston plans his return to glory by leading a squad of raw recruits in a suicide raid against the Indian Nation. Although Jed Cooper (Victor Mature, My Darling Clementine) is the only man who can stop him, the savage frontiersman is torn between saving the lives of his friends or letting them ride to their doom. For Jed's in love with the Colonel's wife (Anne Bancroft, 1962 Academy Award winner for Best Actress, The Miracle Worker), and only Marston's death will set her free.

Victor Mature worked well in the Western genre, such as his performance as Doc Holliday in My Darling Clementine. The Last Frontier is another good performance by Mature, bolstered by strong support from Robert Preston, James Whitmore, and Guy Madison.

Mature plays a trapper/scout who is thinking of settling down in civilization. While he and his two trapper friends visit a fort in the wilderness, Mature falls for the young wife of an Army colonel who is anxious to address the danger coming from warring Indians in the area of the fort. Mature makes a play for the wife, sending Mature, the colonel and the whole fort to the brink of disaster.

The perfomances here are good, to a large extent due to the talents involved, plus the stout direction of Anthony Mann, who proved that he could take a seemingly mild-mannered actor like James Stewart and turn him into a rousing man of action. The Last Frontier is a good addition to anyone's Western DVD collection.

"The Savage Wilderness" tries very hard to achieve a realistic atmosphere but misses the mark under the weight of its Hollywood contrivances. Still, the movie is a very notable attempt at an adult treatment of the genre, and the plot and presentation are intense enough to hook the viewer from the start. Robert Preston plays the most interesting character, a commanding officer determined to go into battle at any cost to his personnel or his marriage, but Victor Mature gives the best performance as a standard semi-savage/semi-civilized trapper-hero. Guy Madison plays the commanding officer who must defer to Preston, and another "Guy"--Guy Williams of "Zorro" and "Lost In Space"--has a minor role as Madison's underling. Handsomely produced and laced with well-directed action scenes.

THE LAST FRONTIER--also known as SAVAGE WILDERNESS--is one of the 3 best westerns ever made!!! #1 is SHANE, #2 is THE UNFORGIVEN, and #3 is THE LAST FRONTIER!!!
Victor Mature shines in his leading role as Jed Cooper, a rough, tough frontiersman who finds his whole world changing around him as he meets the Union officers of a fort in frontier territory, Colonel Marston (Robert Preston) and Captain Riordan
(Guy Madison). This is an adult western, with well developed characters that help the movie to avoid the usual good guys in white hats, bad guys in black hats storyline of most westerns, as the hard drinking and hard living Mature struggles to understand civilization. The title song is great, the photography is great, and so is the directing and acting.
Guy Madison--a former radio announcer--uses his voice extremely well to control his scenes, and Robert Preston is excellent as the obsessed military man. And Anne Bancroft is superb as Preston's military wife, as she is literally swept off her feet by the bold Mature.
Guy Williams--later of "Zorro," and "Lost in Space" has one of his many 1950s bit parts in movies with major stars, constantly in the background--but never seen in closeups--as Private Benton.
THE LAST FRONTIER is different from other westerns in almost every way, from its treatment of Indians to its portrayal of the military, to its development of the romance between an uncivlized frontiersman and a civilized married woman. SHANE had the romance with a married woman--suggested--but no Indians, and THE UNFORGIVEN had neither.
THE LAST FRONTIER IS ONE OF THE 3 BEST WESTERNS EVER MADE!!!

No matter how many times I've watched this movie on the old Saturday Night At The Movies or recently on Encore Westerns, never get tired of watching The Last Frontier (earlier title: Savage Wilderness). I prefer The Last Frontier title, just something about 'savage wilderness' doesn't sound quite right. And the soundtrack from the movie, with Rusty Draper's voice, is quite catchy. All you buckaroos from the 1950s will remember Draper and his hit parade "Freight Train" song.

I am a Victor Mature fan having all his western films on file. Victor may have said he was no actor having 20-some films to back that up, however I don't think he really believed that anymore than I do, and he gives a very smooth performance in this film. Backed up by several other accomplished actors he is the equal of any. I'm no film research expert only watching those I like, but possibly this was one of Anne Bancroft's first films, and her more than adequate performance leaves a good memory with this viewer. Though her 'blonde' hair is a bit of over-the-top stunning for the western frontier.

Some things in this movie are a bit awry, especially the several drunken scenes, but overall this is a very good example of a Hollywood western script at its 1950s best. The backdrop scenery for the movie truly compliments the story and the ruggedness and realism of Fort Shallet each in its own enhance this story of blue-leg infantry Army against Red Cloud's Sioux (today called Lakota). The talk of the Assiniboine joining the Sioux is not true to history as the Assiniboine tribe after 1832 was pretty much non-existent, the tribe had been scourged by the small pox epidemic that raged on the plains in those earlier days, having deadly effect on other tribes such as the Atsina, and Mandan tribes as well.
