Critic Reviews for Desert Fury (Desert Town)
If you could be sure that it was meant to be funny, you could relax and enjoy it thoroughly.
As a self-described "front row performer," Cave is at home in this unusual film, backstroking in the ornate aquarium that Forsythe and Pollard have constructed for him.
A beaut of a Technicolored mistake from beginning to end.
It's as modern as the casino at Las Vegas and as rugged as the Battle of the Little Big Horn.
Desert Fury is delightful melodramatic confection. It's not a good film by any means but boy is it enjoyable.
Audience Reviews for Desert Fury (Desert Town)
Richly color saturated noir that Mary Astor walks off with even though she's a supporting character. You can tell this was made early in Lancaster's career considering his part is so small. Lizabeth's car is drool worthy. Solid drama.
well this is just a hoot IF u can find it. it's a completely oddball technicolor noir with a very strong gay subtext, completely subverting the hayes code of the period. as a friend of mine put it, it's as if tennessee williams wrote a western. lizabeth scott looks amazing but mary astor steals the film. also this was technically burt lancaster's debut, altho it was held back from release for nearly a year. filmed in central arizona's verde valley where things haven't really changed much
