Desert Fury

A film by Lewis Allen
Starring Lizbeth Scott, Mary Astor, Burt Lancaster

We’re not exactly sure how to classify this movie, except to say that it’s outrageously gay. The homoerotic undercurrent present in many noir films swims deliriously close to the surface in this lush crime melodrama, Will luscious Liz Scott tear apart the special bond shared by gangsters John Hodiak and Wendell Corey? Could Mary Astor really be her Mom, with all that kissing? Just how clueless is beefcake sheriff Burt Lancaster? Must be seen to be believed—and, of course, glorious costumes by Edith Head!
