Donovan's Reef


USA 1963, 109 minutes
Dir. John Ford
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Classics, Comedy / War

Topics: Period 1940s.


Aroview: One of dir. Ford’s more comically inclined efforts with ex-Navy buddies John Wayne, Lee Marvin and Jack Warden raising hell on the remote South Pacific island of ‘Ailakaowa’. Despite the freewheeling ‘low’ humour this reveals some typically Ford-ian comments on civilisation and its discontents.
