(aka 'Savage Wilderness')

http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/direct-chair/mann.htm
USA 1955

 

 Mann's camera tracks and cranes virtually at will through the dark - much of the film was shot at night - creating a brooding and sinister atmosphere. Savage Wilderness (or The Last Frontier as it is also known) documents the 'civilizing' of a noble savage. Mature is on fine form as the brutish trapper who saves an Oregon fort from attack, but there's more trouble afoot when he sets his sights on the wife of the commander.

Comments:

This is a very dark image but I have my suspicions that it is close to the films actual appearance. Not especially sharp with dull colors - the image is not maximized for resolution having black borders surrounding it within the frame. It is a shame as there is some exceptionally good cinematography in this film (and great wide ratio!) - typical of Mann utilizing the splendid outdoors. Yellow optional subtitles and no extras have become a new trademark of how Columbia are treating old films. It is a Mann western though and for that reason alone - a valued part of my collection.
