| You Take your allies where you find them
With the Everglades standing in for the New Guinea jungle, John Payne stars as a charter boat skipper who loses his boat to an unscrupulous Forrest Tucker. How he loses it to Tucker I won't divulge, but Payne is really played for a sucker.

But you take your allies where you find them and Payne has to team up with a couple of lowlifes played Alan Mowbray and John Abbott and they go looking for a downed plane that was piloted by Robert Lowery and had Rhonda Fleming and half a million dollars in gold bullion. Both those objects are worthy of rescue.

Crosswinds is your average action adventure drama and quite frankly I was never really convinced that we were in New Guinea, especially after seeing the Australian production of Walk Into Hell which was shot in the real New Guinea. But Rhonda Fleming photographed beautifully her red hair set against the green of the Everglades.

Crosswinds is a Pine-Thomas B film production from Paramount and it should please Rhonda's and Payne's fans.
