Audience Reviews for Wind Across the Everglades

½

with an ecological theme in 1958, fascinating cast including stripper gypsy rose lee and circus clown emmett kelly, and some beautiful wildlife photography, it's a shame it's so hard to find. ray was fired from the picture, some of his footage scrapped and a cheesy soundtrack added, but the results are still pretty great. love cottonmouth's band of swamp pirates. a few disjointed plot points but no serious complaints
