directed by John Ford
U.S.A. 1953

 

John Ford's 1953 remake of Red Dust lies far from his field of personal interest--in Africa, in fact--but it is a creditable sex and safari yarn. Ava Gardner more than holds her own against Jean Harlow's original performance, lending her dusky energy to a tritely conceived part: she's the international call girl who falls for the great white hunter (Clark Gable, far more interesting than he was in the first version). As the temptingly pure and fragile Englishwoman, Grace Kelly was closer to Ford's sympathy and understanding, but Gardner walks off with the movie and the man. Oddly, the studio scenes are more atmospheric than the location shots.

Comments In a strange move, Warner Home Video released 2 John Ford lesser titles exclusively to Target stores in U.S. Both titles have been available in Europe (U.K., Germany) and Australia since July 2004 and copyright of the new DVDs confirm they were made in 2004. Most likely, they will be released to other stores later in 2006 with upcoming Clark Gable Signature Boxset. The un-restored image is rather good, but with some damage (capture 3 for 3 Godfathers, capture 4 for Mogambo). The only extra on each disc is a theatrical trailer.
