Movie Info

Thunder Bay was another inspired collaboration between star James Stewart and director Anthony Mann. Stewart plays an ex-GI named Steve, who has a hankering to drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Together with his army buddy Gambi (Dan Duryea, in a rare good-guy role), Steve attains the financial backing of irascible oil-company chieftain Kermit MacDonald (Jay C. Flippen) and the two head southward. Before they can even place their drills in the clamps, Steve and Gambi run afoul of local shrimp

Sets up fascinating tensions between people and ways of looking at the world, but ultimately backs away from any kind of meaningful examination of them.

There's not many directors other than Anthony Mann who could have made the rival wildcatters and shrimpers become so lovey-dovey.
