Last of the Mobile Hot Shots is a 1970 American drama film released by Warner Bros.-Seven Arts. The screenplay by Gore Vidal is based on the Tennessee Williams play The Seven Descents of Myrtle.

Myrtle and Jeb are newlyweds who married on a television show shortly after meeting. They return to Jeb's ancestral home, a decaying mansion occupied by his multiracial half-brother Chicken. Myrtle shuttles back and forth between the two men while all their sordid pasts unfold via a series of flashbacks.

Sidney Lumet directed Lynn Redgrave as Myrtle, James Coburn as Jeb, and Robert Hooks as Chicken. The film was made in New Orleans and St. Francisville, Louisiana. It was released as Blood Kin in Europe.
