Product Description:

The South Seas island of Bora Bora is the setting for this modern re-make of the famous "Hurricane" original of 1937. The story is about a love affair between a Samoan and an American girl. A devastating hurricane causes problems for all.

Plot Synopsis:

Jason Robards and Mia Farrow head an all-star cast in this drama that is equal parts romantic drama and disaster opus.
Having recently arrived from Boston, prim Navy brat Charlotte Bruckner reunites with her domineering father, a U.S. sea captain stationed in Bora Bora. Then Charlotte meets the leader of a group of natives, Matangi, who engages her in a torrid affair.
Meanwhile, a tropical storm brews off-shore, promising more destruction than any of its kind. This evolving calamity is just one manifestation of the emotional turmoil bubbling over here...


Production Notes:

  • Controversial director Roman Polanski was originally hired to helm this remake of the 1937 John Ford film. The 1979 version of "Hurricane" cost what was then a whooping sum, $22,000,000, and is now the average cost of a studio feature production.
  • Filmed in 70mm on location in Bora Bora. Color by Technicolor.
