Don&#39;t miss the beginning of this film. Not only is it essential to the whole picture, but it is also a great example of how a filmmaker can show a brutal crime without showing the details on-screen. In the opening, a brutal rape and murder occur; director John Sturges and the performers relay very effectively what happens, it&#39;s the horror in your mind.<br/><br/>Kirk Douglas stars, and he is riveting. My favorite of Mr. Douglas&#39; scenes is when he describes a hanging to Earl Holliman - it&#39;s an &quot;award-worthy&quot; performance; but won none or few, no doubt. The others all perform amicably, too. After Douglas goes to Gun Hill, he sees old friend Anthony Quinn? watch how Douglas and Mr. Quinn play their first scene and you&#39;ll see how good these two actors are.<br/><br/>You always have to suspend disbelief in film watching, and a western is a little different. Westerns have their own world, which you accept, or don&#39;t. I could not really accept Mr. Quinn and Earl Holliman as father and son, at first. I think it could have been helped if Quinn had done something different with his hair; he never seemed concerned about thinning or gray hair, so I can&#39;t fathom the hair? it made him look younger than usual. After the movie went on, I decided to just accept that like I accept the rules you accept when you watch a western.<br/><br/>Besides, Quinn and Holliman are far to good to replace. Then, add Carolyn Jones... Now, I figured, at first, she would have the standard &quot;look pretty and kiss the hero&quot; role -- but, that was not so; actually, she was given a real good part and had a chance to perform a meaningful acting role. Ms. Jones showed she should have been given more good film roles.<br/><br/>So many westerns try build this suspense -- &quot;Last Train from Gun Hill&quot; should have you shaking in your cowboy boots. <br/><br/>********* Last Train from Gun Hill (1959) John Sturges ~ Kirk Douglas, Anthony Quinn, Carolyn Jones, Earl Holliman

This movie took me by surprise as one of the more effective revenge capers I&#39;ve seen in quite awhile. It&#39;s really much more than a simple revenge movie, but it opens with an offense so outrageous, one could never rest without seeing the scoundrel put to justice. That seems like a very unlikely prospect for most of the film&#39;s running length.<br/><br/>The central theme is the classic Western notion of one man representing pure good stubbornly standing fast against overwhelming odds. Last Train combines the brainy suspense of 3:10 to Yuma and the provocative paranoia of High Noon, with a healthy serving of melodrama.<br/><br/>Kirk Douglas may not be as prominent as John Wayne or Clint Eastwood but his work here equals their best. He is extremely grim and convincing as the mightily offended protagonist. Anthony Quinn maintains his usual formidable presence as the heavyweight opponent.<br/><br/>If you&#39;re exploring the great Westerns or just looking for a good suspense thriller, this one is excellent.

In Last Train From Gunhill, there is no possibility of compromise between the characters, no easy resolution:<br/><br/>Craig Beldon (Anthony Quinn): `This is my son you&#39;re talking about.&#39;<br/><br/>Matt Morgan (Kirk Douglas): `No, Craig. It&#39;s my wife we&#39;re talking about.&#39;<br/><br/>Thankfully, the filmmakers did not choose to cheat the audience and followed through to the end.<br/><br/>This is an excellent and long underrated film that stands next to 3:10 to Yuma (which this film is very similar to, even sharing plots) and Shane as the best westerns of the 1950s. It is the darkest of all the physiological westerns of the time, and the startling opening to the film leaves these characters in this situation with no way out, no escape. There can be no happy ending to this film. Also, none of the other films of this type, the `noir&#39; or `siege&#39; westerns, included so many of the difficult realities of racism, class and political power, and domestic violence and how these realities complicate friendship, love, and society.<br/><br/>The characters of Morgan and Beldon are studies in contrast. Both rode together years before on the wrong side of the law, Beldon saving Morgan&#39;s life at one point. However, in their years apart they had developed very differently. Morgan has become a marshal in a small town, Pauly, whose wild past he helped to end. In his first scene he describes a gunfight that took place there eight years before to a group of boys. All the boys were born after the gunfight, after the town had settled down and become `civilized.&#39; Morgan travels using the train or a buckboard, his outfit resembles a business suit and he even wears a (bola) tie. When his wife, a Cherokee woman, is raped and murdered, he swears to kill the culprits but here enters one of the complications in this film, one of the many that make it so interesting. Morgan is not simply a typical, heroic figure defending justice and order (like Cooper in High Noon), though he does represent these ideals. His use of the law is not simply an altruistic faith it&#39;s correctness but, in this case, is his chosen instrument of vengeance. He is going to Gunhill to capture the men responsible for his wife&#39;s death, men he will bring back to Pauly and, using the courts, the jury, and the scaffold, will kill them. In the movie&#39;s most chilling scene, Morgan describes to one of the handcuffed killers what it will be like when he is hung, enjoying the impact of his words on the man. While he gloats the viewer remembers that he is a good man, a father, marshall, a man you might know and would respect.<br/><br/>Beldon is a rancher who has `sewed up this entire country&#39; and owns the town, `even the town council&#39; and the sheriff. His values are masculine, he is always surrounded by men ? his son and his ranch hands ? and his wife is long dead. He thoroughly dominates his surroundings, his town. He can be incredibly generous to his few friends, incredibly demanding of his son, his lover, and his town. In Gunhill, he is the law, while Morgan only represents it.<br/><br/>Linda, Beldon&#39;s lover, returns to Gunhill on the same train that brings Morgan to town. She is returning from a hospital after Beldon had beat her:<br/><br/>Linda: `When he tells you dirty, lying stories about me, why do you believe him? Why don&#39;t you for once believe me?&#39;<br/><br/>Beldon: `Because he&#39;s my son.&#39;<br/><br/>She is only person in the town that will help Morgan, though her reasons are complex: sympathy, revenge against the son, an attempt to hurt the man she loves, the man that hurts her, that chooses to believe the lies of his son because they are his son&#39;s lies. Also, she is the only person in the town that will allow herself to feel the horror of the rape, murder, and siege. I find the attitudes and actions of the townspeople in this film more believable than that of those in High Noon. Here the town is unfeeling and hard, frightened about what would happen if they ever allowed themselves to empathize with the weak, rebel against Beldon. They mock Morgan with racist statements that denigrate his wife because it is easier for them to believe that she was &quot;only an Indian&quot;, that her death really didn&#39;t matter, that her suffering was irrelevant.<br/><br/>The reason the film succeeds, in the end, is that it makes all of these flawed characters sympathetic and understandable. If they could avoid the conflict, they would. Unfortunately, the situation will not allow it.<br/><br/>The other characters are well drawn too, including the sheriff who insists on `taking the long view&#39;; the viscous son Rick who the viewer cannot help but feel some sympathy for because he is so dominated by the father, swept along in his wake; and the reckless ranchhand Lee, who is loyal to the son and not the father.<br/><br/>The acting is great all around, particularly from Carolyn Jones, Quinn, and Douglas, the pairing of which was excellent. Both performances are intense and explosive, as is the film. Poe&#39;s script is excellent and Tiomkin provides a good score.<br/><br/>There have only been a few westerns since 1959 that have matched the complexity and substance of Last Train: Once Upon A Time In The West, The Great Silence, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, and Unforgiven. All of these films exploit the genre&#39;s tragic possibilities to the fullest and all are unforgettable. When I think of these films the eyes of Trintignant in the final scene of The Great Silence come to mind, or the way, in this film, that Douglas yells the name of his wife or Quinn, at the train station, yells that of his son. It is amazing that in the most popular and industrial of art forms, in the most basic of all genres, could be created films of such beauty and power.
