The Last Challenge [The Pistolero of Red River]

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1967. Vintage reference photograph of director Richard Thorpe and actors Angie Dickinson and Glenn Ford looking over a script on the set of the 1967 Western film. With a printed mimeo snipe (noting the film's original title, "The Pistolero of Red River," which has been crossed out and retitled "The Last Challenge" in holograph ink annotation) affixed to the verso, along with holograph ink and pencil annotations and a mimeo snipe.

Based on John Sherry's 1966 novel "Pistolero's Progress." A young gunslinger heads into a small western town with the intention of dueling the local sheriff, who is famed for his skill and speed with a gun. Thorpe's final film, concluding a decades-long affiliation with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Shot on location in California and Arizona.
