Slatterys Hurricane 1949 Richard Widmark Action Adventure
Starring: Richard Widmark, Linda Darnell, Veronica Lake
Richard Widmark flies into what becomes known as Slatterys Hurricane as he looks back on his life in this 1949 film. Directed by Andre de Toth, the film also stars Linda Darnell, John Russell and DeToth’s wife, Veronica Lake.
Richard Widmark plays Slattery, a former Navy man who, with his girlfriend Delores, works for drug smugglers. Slattery is unaware of this, though subconsciously he probably knows, but Delores, an addict, knows everything. (Delores’ addiction is only hinted at). When Slattery meets an old Navy friend, Hobbie, he finds out that Hobbie married his former love, Aggie. Though Delores is in love with Slattery, Slattery is still in love with Aggie and goes after her, not caring about Delores’ feelings or Hobbie’s marriage.
When a hurricane hits, Hobbie is called in for pilot duty so he can get the hurricane coordinates, but he’s too drunk to fly. Slattery takes his place. While flying through the storm, he looks at his mess of a life.
Slatterys Hurricane is a well polished black and white action film that holds the viewer’s interest.
