The one and only teaming of Kirk Douglas and Rock Hudson in The LastSunset was a fortunate one. Kirk's production company Bryna put thisfilm together and the wise Kirk knew what he was doing when he took theflashier and meatier part of the villain.In that regard The Last Sunset is similar to Gunfigh...
Major portions of this movie were filmed on my grandfather's ranch "LaPresa" in Aguascalientes, Mexico. My family and the locals stillremember the excitement of hosting Hollywood stars and a film crew insuch an unlikely place. Throughout the film the actors make factuallycorrect references to the lo...
Terrific western-drama from director Robert Aldrich has sheriff RockHudson tracking lawless Kirk Douglas to a rancher's homestead; theysoon find themselves agreeing to take part in a grueling cattle-drive,and to work out their differences along the way. Breathtakinglyphotographed adventure has three...
The Last Sunset is directed by Robert Aldrich and adapted by DaltonTrumbo from Howard Rigsby's novel Sundown at Crazy Horse. It stars RockHudson, Kirk Douglas, Dorothy Malone, Joseph Cotton and Carol Lynley.In support are Jack Elam, Neville Brand & James Westmoreland. The musicscore is by Ernest Gol...
While more "chick flick" than western, "The Last Sunset" is,nonetheless, a great movie. World class performances from Kirk Douglas,Dorothy Malone and Carol Lynley, and a very good one from Rock Hudson(who struggles with a character who becomes increasingly irrelevant)highlight this effort. The plot ...
An unpretentious Western told in an honest, straightforwardmanner.Robert Aldrich does a very controlled job directing a story straddling theTexas Mexico border, a story told at a steady pace but rarely reachingmemorable highs. The film has many elements of the classic Western includinga chase, cattl...
The gunman Brendan O'Malley (Kirk Douglas) crosses the border riding toMexico and arrives at the ranch of Belle Breckenridge (Dorothy Malone).He asks to spend the night in the place and meets her daughter Melissa(Carol Lynley). Belle was his sweetheart and now is married with thedrunkard and coward ...
As always an incredible performance by Kirk Douglas as an outlaw/drifter on a quest to meet his great love. He's being chased by a Texaslawman played by Rock Hudson. Despite the venue, horses, cattle driveand Mexicans this isn't really a western IMHO. It's a love story drapedwith western gear. Jack ...
Brendan O'Malley,(Kirk Douglas) a former gunman, arrives in Mexico tofind her old love Belle Breckenridge ( Dorothy Malone) ,married to adrunk, John Breckenridge (Joseph Cotten), as it prepares to lead aflock to Texas. In the footsteps of O'Malley go Dana Stribling,(RodHudson), a vindictive sheriff ...
The Last Sunset (1961)Wow, what a cast for a Robert Aldrich movie--Joseph Cotten, RockHudson, and Kirk Douglas. And the themes in this big Western are bigones, from Civil War loyalty years after the fact to love and cattleranching. There are shootouts and rivalries, there is a good guy and abad guy ...
A weird Western by the maestro Robert Aldrich , it deals with BrendanO'Malley,(Kirk Douglas) a previous gunslinger, arrives in Mexico tomeet her old lover Belle Breckenridge ( Dorothy Malone) ,married toalcoholic rancher, John Breckenridge (Joseph Cotten), as he is hiredand prepares to lead a flock ...
A great movie, and a Dalton Trumbo script to boot. Hey, how'd thathappen? Famed Commie lover DT gets real screen credit? Maybe that's whynobody's seen this film. The sets, settings, cinematography and actingare first-rate. This may even be the first of Joseph Cotten's long runof disreputable former ...
Here's a perfect example of why the villain has to be the best actoryou can find, Kirk Douglas filling the bill perfectly, and the 'hero'should be at least passable, Rock Hudson unfortunately failing here.The great punchline to the movie delivered by Dorothy Malone at theend, makes this otherwise 's...
Despite the mostly good cast, nice photography and a western that'stechnically well done, I rate "The Last Sunset" as a below averagewestern and adult western because of its strange, weak and unbelievablestory. The movie is slow-moving. Its major twist would never haveoccurred except that Dorothy Ma...
A lawman (Hudson) and an outlaw (Douglas) join a trail drive where theymeet rivalry, romance and danger.Looks like Douglas' production company Brynaprod was aiming for an epicwestern on the order of Red River (1948). In terms of cinematic sweepand star-studded cast, they got it. The trail herd and s...
Director Aldrich must have known what he was doing... he produced ANDdirected Bette Davis in two pictures after making The Last Sunset! KirkDouglas, Joseph Cotton, and Rock Hudson were all seasoned actors by thetime this film was made. To a certain extent, this is a typicalwestern, with the usual ca...
There are so many subplots in this large-scale Western that with alittle finagling here and there it might have been set in Omsk in 1841.Let me see. Proud former Confederate veteran John Breckenridge (Cotten)is now a drunk who owns a vast herd of cattle in Mexico and is marriedto his staunchly suppo...
it is not the best word but includes the atmosphere, the flavor of oldclassic western, the sentimental scenes , the acting and the tensionbetween characters, the end and the message, the few images who definesa kind of magic and, sure, the performances. it is little more than awestern - seems be mor...
There was a time, particularly during the 1950s, when Americans(including me) were addicted to Westerns. We'd watch just about anyWestern that came along. Our love of Westerns faded as the 1960s rolledin, and today a Western is a relatively rare commodity. Now I willwatch only the exceptional Wester...
Brendan O'Malley (Kirk Douglas) is a wanted man in Texas--that's whyhe's in Mexico when the film begins. A sheriff, Dana Stribling (RockHudson) has come from Texas looking to bring O'Malley back to facejustice. It's not just because he's a lawman but because the manO'Malley shot was Stribling's brot...
"The Last Sunset" has moments of great action typical of the greatwesterns, but others have very little expressiveness. Alternating goodand bad times. Movies with Mexico as a backdrop have always success toperhaps due to difference in cultures quite distinct customs. It isworth remembering: "Vera Cr...
This 1961 offering paired Dorothy Malone and Rock Hudson for the 3rdtime and had the added gift of Kirk Douglas.Joseph Cotten's role is wasted as the alcoholic weakling of a civil warcombatant in the film. His name in the film is John Breckinridge. Howdid they come up with a name like that? The real...
The hunter and hunted plot has been used in many a Western movie. Somehave been exceptional films – "The Searchers" with John Wayne, JeffreyHunter and Natalie Wood; Charles Bronson and Henry Fonda in "Once Upona Time in West;" and James Stewart and others in "The Man fromLaramie." Many such fil...
Leonard Maltin may have said it best in his review when he referred tothis film as "strange on the range". Some unusual elements come intoplay in this tale of two men locked in a conflict that can only resultin death for one of them. Douglas plays a no-good drifter who has lefta wave of disappointme...
