||a very entertaining film|
Fire Down Below film I saw the film with my mom who was a teenager when it was filmed and happened to be watching it being filmed in her neighbourhood, in her native Trinidad and she got very nostalgic. She did say she would like to own a copy of the film so I purchased it for her for her birthday. I though the film had an excellent story line and the actors did a great job my mom however mom would be the better one to give her opinion.

Fire Down Below review Two fishermen-smugglers (Mitchum & Lemmon) battle for the affections of a stateless female (Hayworth) in the Caribbean. Fire Down Below VHS for sale Considerable Trinidad footage is devoted to local colour. Only when one of the men (Lemmon) confronts death through entrapment in the hold of a burning cargo ship is the conflict resolved and do the characters come to terms with their predicaments. Film historians tell us that the director intended the cargo ship sequences to begin and end the film, with the remainder of the tale told in flashbacks. The studio bosses decided otherwise and re-edited the film chronologically. The result is peculiar: part way through, Hayworth and Mitchum disappear for at least a half hour while we are introduced to a host of new characters attempting to rescue Lemmon, leaving one with a feeling of two different films tacked together. Hayworth, top billed, is past her glory days. She’s at her best in a carnival dance sequence, where we get glimpses of the 1940’s Love Goddess. Otherwise she seems both uncomfortable and unconvincing in what is essentially a sordid character role. Her varied hairstyles and wardrobe (ostensibly pulled from a single, small suitcase) hardly seem plausible amid such steamy economic deprivation. Mitchum and Lemmon are more convincing as roughneck social outcasts. The print is in good shape and preserves a particularly wide (2.55:1) aspect ratio. This is the kind of film that could have made no reputations on its own but has its interests for admirers of three leading players from cinema’s movie star days.
