Format: DVD
Richard Brooks' The Last Hunt was a film star Stewart Granger couldn't even stand to hear mentioned - he even tore up a vintage poster for the film when presented it for signing in his later years - but then the director did run off with his wife, so it's understandable. For anyone else this is one of the best of the adult Westerns of the 50s, and years ahead of its time in its attitude to the environment.

In many ways it plays almost like a sequel to one of Anthony Mann's Westerns that see their heroes dragged to their redemption kicking and screaming against it every step in the way. Here Granger's legendary buffalo hunter has already seen the light but, after a buffalo stampede costs him his herd of cattle in a fit of poetic justice, he's dragged back into the darkness by Robert Taylor's callous and proudly racist gunslinger, justifying it on the grounds that "I've already got the guilty conscience. I might as well have the money as well." Raised by Indians, he's fully aware of the damage he's doing as the disappearing buffalo heads for extinction, and he gradually becomes almost as consumed with self-loathing as Taylor is with hate. When the two men fall out over Debra Paget's squaw - the sole survivor of a band of Indians Taylor kills - and a white buffalo hide that's priceless to the hunters and the Indians for very different reasons, a showdown becomes inevitable, though the outcome certainly isn't.

Taylor's is certainly ironic casting - it was Granger turning down many of the epic roles MGM developed for him in films like Quo Vadis and Ivanhoe that gave Taylor his 50s comeback after years of steady decline. His hair color may not convince but his performance does, a shallow and violent man so consumed with hate that he doesn't wear a gun, the gun wears him.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER on 21 Nov. 2012
Format: DVD
The Last Hunt is directed by Richard Brooks who also adapts the screenplay from the novel of the same name written by Milton Lott. It stars Robert Taylor, Stewart Granger, Debra Paget, Lloyd Nolan and Russ Tamblyn. Out of MGM it's a CinemaScope/Eastman Color production with music by Daniele Amfitheatrof and cinematography by Russell Harlan.

Buffalo hunter Sandy McKenzie (Granger) is tired of the hunt, but after a quirk of fate leaves him financially struggling, he accepts an invitation from Charles Gilson (Taylor) to go out on another profitable hunt. But when out on the range, Charlie starts to show a sadistic streak, and after his capture of an Indian girl (Paget), the two men are driven even further apart. Something will have to give.

It's quite often forgotten that one of the key weapons of war is food. The buffalo was an integral animal to the Native American way of life for a number of reasons, be it food, shelter, clothes or religious worth, it was an animal of great substance. So killing them off was a viable tactic for the white man during the Indian wars. The start of Richard Brooks' film tells us that in 1853 there were 60 million buffalo in the West, but within 30 years their number would be only 30 thousand...

What unfolds in this bleak but most potent of pictures, is a tale of men emotionally battered, albeit differently, by the war, a tale tinted (tainted) by racism and ecological concerns. Essentially it's Granger's tired of it all Sandy McKenzie against Taylor's bloodlust racist Charles Gilson. In the middle is Paget's Indian girl, who is courted by McKenzie but owned unwillingly by Gilson, while on the outskirts observing are the skinners, half-breed Jimmy (Tamblyn) and Woodfoot (Nolan).

A very good western about two cowboys one reserved the other mean who team up to hunt buffalo to make there fortune gradually falling out as their different outlooks become apparent.Robert Taylor and Stewart Granger are excellent as the buffalo hunters with Lloyd Nolan just as strong in his supporting role as a buffalo skinner.Some nice scenery filmed on location and good cinemascope use although the quality of the dvd picture could be better.Nevertheless all in all a very enjoyable western and one I would recommend to any western fan.

The Last Hunt 13 Oct. 2013
By Celia DLF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.

The Last Hunt 31 July 2013
By paco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Three men try to make a living by hunting the remaining Buffalo on the plains. The herds are nearly depleted. One man (Robert Taylor)gets great pleasure in killing vast numbers of the beasts.
When he kills a white buffalo, he believes he will get a lot of money for the hide. An Indian women and a half breed in the camp steal the hide to give to a Indian tribe as the White Buffalo is considered sacred. They are tracked by Taylor by evil and greed in his heart. Fine story with fine cast Stuart Granger and Lloyd Nolen

Puts You Behind the Sharps Yourself 13 Nov. 2013
By Walton P. Sellers III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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!
