Star George C. Scott fought with legendary director John Huston during the filming over script rewrites as well as the leading lady, Tina Aumont. After engaging in shouting matches with Scott, Huston quit the film. Fatefully, Aumont was replaced with Trish Van Devere, whom Scott fell in love with and married. Huston was replaced by Richard Fleischer, and the movie bombed both with critics and at the box office. See more »

Where is your wife?

The Last Run is a psychological analogy and public expression of George C. Scott's complicated, intense relationships with Colleen D. and Trish V. Although low-key and ahead of its time, The Last Run is entertaining if you enjoy adult drama which examines details of relationships, emotion, fear of death, determination to succeed, and guilt. George C. Scott's characterization of an aging criminal is intensely quiet and effective.
