Hellfighters

1968

Andrew V. McLaglen
Director
Universal Pictures
Production Company

Vaguely fictionalised account of the exploits of firefighter extraordinnaire, Red Adair, personified as Chance Buckman here.

Thoroughly enjoyable and somewhat underrated for a John Wayne film, the supporting cast helps particularly Jim Hutton in the thankless sidekick role.
