Rousing tale of the heroes of the AlamoReviewed bybuxVote: 9/10

As the story goes...when John Wayne was at Republic Studioes, he approached owner Herbert J. Yates with the idea of a movie about the Alamo, in which he would play Davy Crockett. Yates turned him down and Wayne left the studio(eventually making "The Alamo" in 1960, on his own.) Yates, supposedly, to spite Wayne decided to make an Alamo movie. It was probably convenient that the "Crockett" craze was in full bloom at the time. What resulted was a very good epic(by Republic proportions) of Jim Bowie at the Alamo. Hayden leads a magnificent cast, and Hunnicut gives us a different 'type' of Davy Crockett(maybe to spite Wayne?) Action scenes are done on a grand scale, and the drama of lost love and love found work well. One of the better historical westerns of the 50s.

Pretty good.Reviewed byMartinHaferVote: 8/10

This film is different from the John Wayne film "The Alamo" because instead of focusing on action, "The Last Command" focuses on the causes of the War for Texan Independence that led up to the Alamo. Because of this, the movie puts a context for the rebellion--something that wasn't all too clear in Wayne's huge epic. While not all the reasons are explored (there were Texans who wanted to bring slavery into the territory--something Mexican law did not allow), the dictatorial policies of President Santa Ana were explored. History does record that Santa Ana was a rather inept leader and he sure did do a lot to encourage the revolution--not just in Texas but in other Mexican states.

Sterling Hayden plays James Bowie--the man who popularized a knife now known after him and one of the leaders at the Alamo. Unlike what I expected, Bowie was played as a very even-tempered man--a man who was initially unsure which side he was on in the war. Slowly, Bowie sees Santa Ana's excesses as justification for independence and I appreciated how he wasn't played as some macho hot-head.

As far as the historical accuracy of the film, it's not easy to do a film on the life of Bowie, as there really isn't a huge amount of information about the man. Oddly, however, what history does record about Bowie is generally not discussed in the film--such as the deaths of his wife and children in the years preceding the Battle of the Alamo. But, there are no major historical flaws, either--a plus.

Earlier I mentioned John Wayne's film, "The Alamo". While I think the Wayne film is better than most give it credit for, it is very odd that he sank so much energy and cash into making this film just five years after "The Last Command". And, both films are nearly equal in quality--though "The Last Command" cost a small fraction of the 1960 film and was a bit less long-winded--giving much more bang for the buck. "The Alamo" is better showing the grandness of the battle. It had a lot of extras playing Mexican soldiers, while "The Last Command" clearly only had a hundred or so extras dressed in Mexican uniforms in order to save money! But, "The Last Command" is also clearly better when it comes to portraying individuals and the reasons for the war--making it a much more personal and enjoyable film for me. The only part of the film I really disliked was the macho bull crap fight between Hayden and Ernest Borgnine near the beginning of the film--wow did that come off as stupid!

Beautifu color and beautiful music ...seldom in one placeReviewed bytxgmajorVote: 10/10

I saw "The Last Command" twice in my hometown at the theater in 1955. In the 70's, I saw it several times on the late movies. In the 80's, I copied off the air and have watched it lots of times. My kids, (born in the "70's"), as a rule don't like "Westerns". The three exceptions to that point of view, are three truly great movies: "The Last Command", "Rio Bravo" and "Big Jake"...in any order you choose.

In 1997, I bought the commercial video of "The Last Command" and still have it.

Almost immediately, you "fall in love" with the simple melodies in the film. And later, the lush orchestrations of those simple melodies are even more beautiful. And the color, it's just marvelous.

Another movie of about the same vintage (1954) with astounding color is "The Far Country" . You've never seen Alaska and the Canadian Rockies any better unless you've been there. Beautiful "Blues" and Intense "Greens"...real "sunshine". Both films are well done.

"The Last Command" pays great honor to our "Texas heroes". Jim Bowie, David Crockett, General Santa Anna: all would have adored this film.
