Movie Info

Capt. Ralls (John Wayne) commands the Red Witch, a ship in the fleet of Dutch shipping baron Mayrant Ruysdaal Sidneye (Luther Adler). Ralls has an old feud with the skipper, who years ago took from him the woman he loved, Angelique (Gail Russell). In an act of revenge, Ralls sabotages the ship, causing Sidneye to take action against him. With the whole group together on a remote island, Angelique professes her love for the brooding Ralls, but the situation may be too complicated to mend.

Audience Reviews for Wake of the Red Witch

  • Jun 29, 2011
    This is an outstanding early John Wayne Film. Another early days at sea movie. When I first saw the title cover I thought maybe this was the same movie as Reap The Wind but I was wrong so wrong. This movie out does Reap the Wind by 10 fold. John Wayne is a sea captain who scuttles the Red Witch because of the cargo which is 5 million dollars worth of gold in 1948 so imagine the price today. The man he stole the gold from wants it back so this makes for a very exciting movie. 4 stars for this old Black and White.

    Decent enough retread of Reap the Wild Wind but nothing extraordinary. Good cast, both Gail Russell and Adele Mara look great and Gail is properly ethereal.
