The KL Studio Classics Blu-ray of The Last Sunset is a new 2K transfer that bests by far an earlier DVD that seemed to have color issues. This scan and color job present the show in the best possible light. I can?t seem to get past the film?s more awkward aspects, but fans of Hudson and Douglas will likely enjoy the picture immensely. Ernest Gold?s soundtrack music didn?t make a big impression, yet doesn?t get in the way of the drama.

Like Vera Cruz, this is ahead of its time, and like Vera Cruz, this is a movie of moments. And during those moments, it's something of a masterpiece. While Sunset should be a good 15 mins shorter, it doesn't have the pacing issues that I felt on my first viewing. The final shootout definitely influenced OUATITW, and I believe Sergio Donati said as much. There is a world where Donna Reed and Rock Hudson could have starred in a Leone movie judging from Reed's performance in Backlash and Hudson's performance in Sunset. Hudson is almost as cool and masculine as Mitchum in this one. B+/A-

I'd definitely recommend the Kino bluray.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..
