The Last Hard Men

The Last Hard Men is a fairly good actioner with handsome production values and some thoughtful overtones. Charlton Heston and James Coburn are both fine as a retired lawman and his half-Indian nemesis matching their wits in 1909 Arizona along the way to one last bloody confrontation.

The Last Hard Men is a fairly good actioner with handsome production values and some thoughtful overtones. Charlton Heston and James Coburn are both fine as a retired lawman and his half-Indian nemesis matching their wits in 1909 Arizona along the way to one last bloody confrontation.

Coburn escapes from a Yuma prison gang to wreak carefully planned revenge on Heston, who killed his wife years ago in a scatter-shot shootout. Recruiting a motley gang Coburn lures the anxious Heston out of Tucson by kidnapping and molesting his daughter (Barbara Hershey).

The details of life at a crucial transition point in American history are well captured in the script and in the art direction.
