Trivia

When re-released nationally in 1950 by Favorite Films, this film was often shown in tandem with the re-release of Man of the Forest (1933). See more »

Goofs

Around the 47 to 48 minute mark when Ellen Colby goes to kick the package that Lynn Haden has left on the rock you can see a car on the valley floor (actually filmed in Big Bear Lake, CA). It appears to be a Model T type. The time this story takes place is approximately 20 years after the end of the Civil War which would be around 1885. Such style of a vehicle was not invented yet and certainly few if any vehicles were in the "Nevada" hills on during that time. See more »

very enjoyable western with Randolph Scott ans Buster Crabbe
9 March 2009 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

this western,not to be confused with the Gunsmoke TV movie of the same name,is quite enjoyable,it's fast paced,lots of action and excitement.the story is basically two families are carrying on a longstanding feud with each other,and killing members of the opposite clan.Randolph Scott stars as does Buster Crabbe,and i'm also fairly certain a very young Shirley Temple appears,though i don't recall her name in the credits.she must have been about 5 years old or so at the time.Jack Cunningham wrote the screenplay from the novel by Zane Grey.Henry Hathaway directed.he also directed Rawhide(1951)The Garden of Evil(1954)and he was also one of four directors(each director having their own segments)to direct the big budget opus How the West was Won(1962).the other directors were John Ford,George Marshall,and Richard Thorpe,who was uncredited.as for to last Man AKA Law of Vengeance, i would definitely watch it again.my vote: 7/10
