Dorothy Lamour



Dorothy Lamour & Jon Hall, 1937 from the John Ford film The Hurricane, 1937.

Released Nov 5, 1937 in Los Angeles.

Starring Dorothy Lamour, Jon Hall, C. Aubrey Smith, Mary Astor, John Carradine, Thomas Mitchell

Story takes place on the Pacific island Manukura, which we see as a tropical paradise, not counting how badly the European governor (Raymond Massey) runs the place, and the eventual typhoon (in an expensive special effects section that made up a big part of the huge - - for its time - - $2 million dollar production budget) that turns Manukura into a wreck.
