PLOT SYNOPSIS

Charlie Gilson (ROBERT TAYLOR), a mean-spirited hunter, joins reserved Sandy McKenzie (STEWART 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 (LLOYD NOLAN), an old, one-legged skinner, 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.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.0/5


Not much here, this release includes a Vintage TV Promotional Excerpts from the MGM Parade TV series and the Theatrical Trailer (3:46; HD).

 


VIDEO – 4.5/5, AUDIO – 3.75/5


This new 1080p high-definition transfer really shows off the Dakota-plains vistas incredibly well while colors are consistently vibrant and the picture appears nicely clean, free of any obvious signs of aliasing, artifacting or even specs/dust marks. This is another well done transfer of a 60+ year old movie from the Warner Archive Collection.

The disc includes your standard but effective DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Stereo track.


OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, The Last Hunt is a beautifully shot western featuring a few great performances, most notably Robert Taylor and Stewart Granger. The Blu-ray release from Warner’s Archive Collection offers great looking and sounding transfers but thin features.
