Overview

Columbia Tri-Star has released Anthony Mann's The Last Frontier (1955) in a well-transferred edition, that captures the extreme-wide-screen early CinemaScope feature in a beautiful letterboxed transfer (2.55-to-1), parts of which are so crisp that they almost seem like they're in 3-D at times; on the other hand, some of the night shots are also transferred so dark that it's impossible to make out precisely what's going on in certain scenes. The movie has been given a less-than-generous 12 chapters, and comes with no other special features -- it sometimes amazes this reviewer that, with the exception of Winchester '73, in which star James Stewart had a financial interest, none of Anthony Mann's major films has ever received the treatment that it deserves, in terms of an audio commentary or other supplement; not that The Last Frontier would be the ideal place to start, but it also wouldn't be the worst place to start, either. As it is, the mere release of this movie (which may be better known under its reissue title, Savage Frontier) in letterboxed presentation should make it an essential acquisition for any western fan, but it could easily have transcended that audience with a little more work put into it.
