Howard Fritzson's rating of the film A High Wind in Jamaica

Sometimes Anthony Quinn comes on too strong. He is a large presence who needs to be perfectly cast so that he can fit the scale of a movie. In "A High Wind In Jamaica," he is so right for the part that he exults in it. I think that this film deserves rediscovery for itself and for Quinn's performance which is, in my humble opinion, the finest of his career.
