The Last Challenge - A Passing Review

The Last Challenge

 - A Passing Review

We just watched a movie titled The Last Challenge on TV. The script needs work. It could have much more natural language in it. Chad Everett and Angie Dickinson kind of stand around and the only thing moving are their mouths.

Chad comes from Tennessee but talks total 20th century. When we first meet his character, he claims he hadn't fished and eaten the fish since he was a kid. Somehow he lives in a world where you have to scrounge for dinner but never had to stop and consume fish you caught while passing through some woods.

Colored people are servants if they are black or drunk if they are native Americans in this film. The writer had a tiny brain.

Chad's clothing is prime. Just purchased from a store and perfectly cleaned and pressed. Angie has crazy fancy dresses which could be possible, but she runs a whorehouse while speaking like a high school drama student.

Glenn Ford is good but his role is written as Mr. Perfect ex-gunslinger who is now sheriff.

1967 should have produced something more gripping. I would say this would be a decent film if it were rewritten, more natural, and avoided stereotyping people of color.

The one good thing is Chad Everett has no pony tail. I think Chad is a good actor but I hate that goddamned ponytail. It's disturbed me since 'medical center'. In fact, I had a flashback to the ponytail while watching this film and had to be heckled by Sal to shut up about it.
