Review by Paul Arnold (posted on 24-Nov-2007)

This movie has become almost impossible to get. A few film reels may exist, but it has never been reproduced on VHS or DVD as far as anyone can tell. Wind Across The Everglades captures the wild dangerous beauty of early 1900s Florida. A brief synopsis as I remember it: Christopher Plummer is a young game warden intent on reining in Florida Everglades "Crackers", like Burl Ives' notorious character, "Cottonmouth", who make their living poaching wildlife. In a totally believable twist, Plummer actually wins the admiration and protection of Cottonmouth and his life is spared from the usual fate of game wardens in the early "Glades. The film must have been shot on location because the scenery is awesome and authentic. We wish this film could be found and released on DVD. It has a good plot and is a genuine peek into the lives of Everglades pioneers circa 1900.
