Stewart Granger got so many good notices for King Solomon's Mines and Harry Black and the Tiger that I guess Henry Hathaway and Paramount decided to cash in on one more trip.
Granger was at a financial crunch at this part of his life and he'd work in just about anything. He had just done several years of European westerns.
Well The Last Safari isn't even close to King Solomon's Mines or Harry Black and the Tiger. Poor Granger, he looks like he's sleepwalking through the safari.
And for reasons I can't understand Kaz Garas got top billing in his first feature film. Did Granger lose a bet to someone at Paramount because I can't figure that out at all.
Garas has had a successful career as a character actor, do in no part to his performance here. He's just plain obnoxious, a kind of early version of Donald Trump. Garas is so annoying in his portrayal of a young American tycoon that the film is close to being unwatchable.
Granger was not particularly crazy about a lot of his films and this is definitely one that was inflicted instead of released to the movie going public.
