Video features essential visual career clips from actress Gail Russell's appearance in WAKE OF THE RED WITCH. The movie premiered on December 30, 1948, in Houston, Texas, the then-current home of Garland Roark, author of the novel upon which the screenplay was based. Co-star/producer John Wayne was Gail's "hero" in art and life. She will always be remembered best for the two films she made with Duke: ANGEL AND THE BADMAN (1947) and WAKE OF THE RED WITCH (1948). The RED WITCH novel is far superior to the movie; but, onscreen, as "Angelique Desaix," Gail remains forever lovely and haunting.
Video music by Japanese genius: composer Hiroshi Miyagawa.
