(Nicholas Ray, 1958).
Ray’s seductive movie, set in the wilds of turn-of-the-century Florida is an ahead-of-its-time ecological thriller in which game warden Christopher Plummer takes on a gang of poachers, led by the awesomely charismatic Burl Ives. The legendary stripper, Gypsy Rose Lee, makes one of her rare screen appearances in the role of a be-plumed bordello Miami madam.
