The beginning of this move is slow and slightly corny, aside from the usual brilliance of Jack Lemmon who can make any role funny, but once it got going I really got invested in the characters and it was an altogether enjoyable film. Not one of my favorites, but worth seeing again.

A film of two halves. First the boring love interest, then the semi-decent suspense scenes.

(1957) Fire Down Below

Not bad soaper which is better than alot that're coming out as of late stars Robert Mitchum and Jack Lemmon bickering over a lady, Irene played by Rita Hayworth! Requires patience with a superficial ending! Without the revelation near the end, this one would've been a stinker!

- ‚??Fire Down Below‚?? is an odd and rarely seen film produced by Albert R. Broccoli‚??s Warwick Film Productions and released in 1957, five years before he became producer of the James Bond franchise. The movie is set in the Caribbean and features the unusual co-starring of Jack Lemmon and Robert Mitchum as smugglers who form a never believable love triangle with the ever beautiful Rita Hayworth. The movie is more interesting as a pre-curser for the Caribbean location of two of Broccoli‚??s early Bond movies; ‚??Dr. No‚?? and ‚??Thunderball,‚?? and features several future participants in the Bond franchise; Bernard Lee, Anthony Newley, Eric Pohlmann, Syd Cain and Bob Simmons. The director, Robert Parrish, also directed the Peter Sellers and Orson Welles scenes in the unofficial Bond movie, ‚??Casino Royale‚?? ‚?¶

a very bitter bill to swallow, even for Hayworth fans.
