Screen legend John Wayne pays tribute to oil field legend “Red” Adair in ‘HELLFIGHTERS.’ Chance Buckman [John Wayne], is a colourful Texan who tames out-of-control infernos in exotic locations around the world. He is joined by a crew that includes Jack Lomax [Jay C. Flippen], Joe Horn [Bruce Cabot] and his assistant, Greg Parker [Jim Hutton]. Between blazes, Chance “carries the torch” for Madelyn Buckman, the wife who left him 20 years earlier because of his dangerous lifestyle. Meanwhile, Greg Parker has his hands full at the poker table and in the bedroom with Chance Buckman’s spunky daughter, Tish Buckman [Katharine Ross]. Directed by action veteran, Andrew V. McLaglen, this film features sizzling special effects and exciting locations in Texas and Wyoming.

Saw this was I was 10 the first time in my home town movie theatre. Still kept me on the edge of my seat this time too. This is the only John Wayne movie I know of where he isnt a cowboy.
