Classic Hollywood western starring Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn. Douglas plays US Marshall Matt Morgan, a man out for revenge after the brutal rape and murder of his wife. Recognising a saddle left behind by the killers as belonging to his old friend Craig Belden (Quinn), Morgan confronts him, only to discover that the real killer is Belden's son, Rick (Earl Holliman). Belden refuses to give the boy up, and Morgan must take a stand in the isolated town of Gun Hill, while Belden's band of killers tries to hunt him down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 1950ths Western ! 18 April 2006
Format:DVD
John Sturges author of such defining 50ths and 60ths films has " Gunfigth at Ok Corral", "Bad Day at Black Rock", "The Magnificent Seven" and "The great Escape" directed this suspenseful western in 1958 starring Kirk Douglas as a Marshal on the trail of his indian wife murderers!With Anthony Quinn and Earl Holliman giving the usual strong performances and Kirk's powerful portray, "Last Train to Gun Hill" shines as a wonderful example of that most beloved of film genres, the Western!

The dvd edition presents clear image in the original screen ratio (1:78.1)with 5.1 DD sound lots of subtitles and a trailer.

4.0 out of 5 stars GRIPPING 11 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
Westerns are so often cliche ridden, sprawling and predictable. But under John Sturges's tight direction this is a first rate and gripping movie. Excellent acting from all three leads. Sturges was a fine director - Bad Day at Black Rock (sadly not available on region 2 DVD - why not?)and The Magnificent Seven are better known but this is just as good.The cinematography is superb.If you like high quality suspense movies this is highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Thrilling Western 3 May 2011
Format:DVD
Two years after the classic "Gunfight at the OK corral" John Sturges teams up yet again with the legend Kirk Douglas, in this very good revenge western. It also has a great supporting cast including Anthony Quinn and Earl Holliman, as the bad boys. The story is about a Marshal named Matt Morgan (Douglas) who wants his revenge for the murder of his wife. But the problem is the murderer's father (Quinn) is old friends with Matt and they both become rivals. What I like about this film is that it has a mixture of other classic westerns, such as "High noon" and "3:10 to yuma". But I prefer this and the acting performances from Douglas and Quinn are excellent. If you love westerns, you will love this and I guarantee that you will be on the edge of your seat throughout the film.

By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Matt Morgan (Kirk Douglas) and Craig Belden (Anthony Quinn) are old friends who went on different career paths. Morgan is a law man, settled down with his Indian wife and had a son. Belden is a cattle baron and self appointed ruler of the town of Gun Hill. When Morgan's wife is raped and murdered, he follows the only clue available to him; one of Belden's saddles. At first he hopes that Belden's saddle had been stolen, but he quickly finds that the horrendous crime has been committed by Rick {Earl Holliman}, Belden's son. But upon arresting Rick, Morgan finds that Belden, and the town under his control, except Belden's on off gal, Linda {Carolyn Jones}, are not keen to let him leave on the Last Train From Gun Hill.

Directed by John Sturges {The Magnificent Seven}, Last Train From Gun Hill is adapted by James Poe (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) from a story written by Les Crutchfield. Photography is by Charles Lang and the score is provided by Dimitri Tiomkin.

The first thing that springs to mind upon completing a viewing of this film; is that the tale has been dealt with far better in the Western genre before. Thus Sturges' film holds no surprises at all. Only two years prior we had had the infinitely superior Delmer Daves piece, 3:10 To Yuma. However, if a story has good thematics, then why not take another wander down a well trodden moody path? Indeed, and Sturges' film is nicely constructed pretty much across the board. With its blend of psychological undertones and action, helped by the mostly impressive cast, it ends up being an entertaining Oater. This in spite of not going a little darker when perhaps it should have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kirk Douglas rides again! 24 May 2010
Format:DVD
Kirk is super smooth in another tailor-made role. I find his acting under-stated and natural and so was very happy to see him perform so effortlessly in this film
