An interesting picture which adds steam to the argument that there should only be one director in charge of a film. THE LAST OUTPOST is plagued with a pair of directors, Barton and Gasnier, resulting in a film that is sometimes good and sometimes bad. It begins with Grant's being saved by

Rains from a tribe of Kurds in the desert. Together the British officers cooperate in transporting an Armenian tribe, allies of the Brits, to safer territory. Their trek takes them over majestic mountain ranges and through dangerous passages. At this point, however, the picture nose-dives into a

familiar Hollywood melodrama, as if no one could decide how to end the first half. While recovering in a Cairo hospital, an injured Grant falls in love with his nurse, Michael. It turns out that Michael is Rains' wife, though they haven't seen each other since their wedding three years ago. Grant

and Rains are sent out together with their troops to attack an enemy fort, resulting in Rains' death. The doors are then left wide open for the romance to begin.
