Critic Reviews for Wind Across the Everglades

All Critics (2)

Christopher Plummer is suitably heroic and rock-jawed in this lively but chaotic action drama

Audience Reviews for Wind Across the Everglades


with an ecological theme in 1958, fascinating cast including stripper gypsy rose lee and circus clown emmett kelly, and some beautiful wildlife photography, it's a shame it's so hard to find. ray was fired from the picture, some of his footage scrapped and a cheesy soundtrack added, but the results are still pretty great. love cottonmouth's band of swamp pirates. a few disjointed plot points but no serious complaints
