Editorial Reviews

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.

A gritty, intense film describing the life of the buffalo hunters very accurately. Granger is excellent as the strong, silent hero. Taylor's portrayal of a psychopath is flawless, and Lloyd Nolan almost steals the show from both of them with his comedy relief. The filmed bison footage is also outstanding. Buy this one; it's a jewel!

If you like westerns as much as I do, you will enjoy this one. Stewart Granger was great (as usual) as the hero and Robert Taylor was magnificent
as the bad one. Very intense at times but it held your interest until the end and boy what an ending.

There is a stark realism about this movie. It is a tale of two hunters who team up to kill buffalo for their hides. Robert Taylor plays a man who enjoys killing people, especially Native Americans, almost as much as killing buffalo. This is easily Taylor’s most memorable performance. Stewart Granger plays a man who has hunted buffalo for so much of his life that it’s doubtful he knows any other way to make a living. Unlike Taylor’s character, Granger’s hunter is a reluctant hunter. Inevitably the two must clash.

Debra Pagent plays a Dakota Indian determined to take care of a young child even if it isn’t hers. Although Pagent does not look Native American, she brings a quiet dignity to the role. I saw this movie in a theatre in the fifties and recall a scene where Pagent is bathing nude. The shot was a close up of the actress with her back turned to the camera. You seldom saw nudity on the big screen in the fifties. For some reason, that scene was replaced with a far away shot (screenplay writers call it a long shot) where Pagent’s body is covered by tree branches. Elvis Presley once said that Debra Pagent was the most beautiful girl in the world. I certainly thought so, especially when I saw that nude scene. Pagent later became a Christian and came out of retirement to host a show on the Trinity Broadcast Network. I suspect she asked the producers of the movie to delete that scene.

I recommend seeing this movie on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) if you have it. The picture quality is excellent and TCM shows the wide screen version. And Robert Osborne provides some insightful commentary.

Osborne has noted that although the story takes place in the winter, this movie was actually shot in midsummer with temperatures well above 100.

To date, the only feature film strictly about the great buffalo hunts of the 1870s-80s. The film is very well done for it's time. They took pains to set the time period as Montana in 1883 (stating that Custer died 7 years ago), the last year of the great hunts. Firearms are correct; an 1874 Sharps and an 1876 Winchester Centennial model (probably in .45-60, which was enough to bring down a buffalo.) Hunting, skinning and cartridge reloading processes are shown or explained. The shopping for supplies was dead on. Someone did their homework for this one. Curiously, there has not been a movie about the buffalo hunts since then. I hope that will change soon!

Had seen this movie about 20 years ago and remembered they had an actual Buffalo hunt by the government and used a lot of the footage in this film. Only time I had ever seen such a thing.

Excellent Western from the 1950s. It takes place during the waning days of the conflicts between whites and the Native Americans. Two men decide to go on an extensive buffalo hunt in order to diminish the herds so the Natives will starve. One hunter is a rabid racist who captures an Indian woman and the baby in her charge after killing her male relatives. The other hunter has respect for Indians because he lived among them, and undergoes a crisis of conscience because of the wholesale buffalo killing and decides to liberate the woman and child. Robert Taylor plays the racist, Stewart Granger plays the other hunter. Lloyd Nolan plays the wise old buffalo skinner, Russ Tamblyn plays the half-breed boy along to help, and Debra Paget plays the Indian woman. All give fine performances, but Robert Taylor is absolutely scary as the racist. The DVD-R is excellent quality. Highly recommended for Western fans.
