Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

In this disappointing Universal adventure, James Stewart and Dan Duryea play business partners who drill for oil off the Louisiana coast and threaten the local shrimp industry. "They wanted a picture with Jimmy Stewart and we concocted one," Stewart said later of this heavily contrived effort that isn't a patch on the great series of westerns he made with the same director, Anthony Mann. It's the sort of movie that's made by numbers: a bit of action, a bit of romance, a bit of capitalist conflict, and when that gets monotonous the weather turns bad.
