Another wretched Dino De Laurentiis, multimillion-dollar ($22 million, to be exact) flop, this time a remake of John Ford's classic HURRICANE (1937). Farrow stars as the white- bread daughter of Navy man Robards, traveling to Eastern Samoa to visit him. Despite her racial misgivings, she

soon falls in love with young island prince Ka'Ne, much to Robards' dismay. After about ninety minutes of soap opera, the giant hurricane hits; the last twenty minutes of the film are spent on tidal waves, high winds, and uprooted palm trees. While the effects are fine (supervisor Robinson also

headed up the effects for the 1937 version), the story and performances are mindless. This film packs about as much punch as a waterlogged lei.
