Wake of the Red Witch Diretto da Edward Ludwig


Wayne played a number of morally ambiguous characters throughout his career, but he didn’t get many movies that foreground a love story as much as this one. Rall’s passion for Angelique (and Wayne’s chemistry with Russell) drives what is a romantic tragedy as much as an adventure story. (“Underrated” is what Wayne biographer Scott Eyman calls Wake.)

Wayne brings his usual athleticism to the part, especially in a well-staged battle with a giant octopus, but it brings him no satisfaction or resolution. It is in the haunting finale, with his scuba mask filling with water, that Ralls recognizes a way out. He can reunite with Angelique in the last few seconds before death, remembering when he once had a future.

…It stands as an eccentric, haunting work, one that also made a contribution to Wayne’s transformation, but which traffics in elements of gothic fantasy and lyricism not often associated with Wayne’s personality… Though Ludwig was an uneven filmmaker… there are enough other moments of morbid splendor in his work to suggest that “Red Witch” was no fluke.
