Also known as The Law of Vengeance!
8 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is in the Shirley Temple collection. She is only in a for a few minutes and uncredited. The film was under the title, Law of Vengeance, instead of the Last Man. It must have been her film debut. The film is dark in subject matter as there is plenty of violence. The cast is excellent with Randolph Scott and Esther Ralston and others. The film shows the dangers of gun violence and vengeance between warring families in the Wild West. In 1933, the film industry was just getting started. I feel though this film was misplaced in the collection. The ending appeared abrupt and left in doubt about the ending too!
