Brief and very much to the point, Inferno is a grim, fascinating tale of survival. Breaking his leg on a vacation trip, millionaire Carson (Robert Ryan) is left in the middle of the desert by his wife Geraldine and his business partner Joseph Duncan.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Inferno

    OK programmer starring Robert Ryan as a man left behind in the desert with a broken leg by his cheating wife and her lover who is forced to survive and escape his fate. Ryan is pretty much the whole show here though it should be noted the film was one of the early entries in the 50's 3-D craze.

  • Keisuke Kawasaki's rating of the film Inferno

    One of the Roy Ward Baker's key theme is survival. Inferno displays the director's ability to create keen survival film with much creativity. It is tense, thrilling, and surprisingly meditative. A desparation of the main character who is left to die in desert, come through from every existance of the film's lead, Robert Ryan. It certainly is one of the best films from director Baker as well as great Robert Ryan.
