Screen legend John Wayne pays tribute to oil field legend "Red" Adair in Hellfighters. Chance Buckman (Wayne), is a colorful Texan who tames out-of-control infernos in exotic locations around the world. He is joined by a crew that includes Jack Lomax (Jay C. Flippen), Joe Horn (Bruce Cabot) and his assistant, Greg Parker (Jim Hutton). Between blazes, Chance "carries the torch" for Madelyn, the wife who left him 20 years earlier because of his dangerous lifestyle. Meanwhile, Greg has his hands full at the poker table and in the bedroom with Chance's spunky daughter, Tish (Katharine Ross). Directed by action veteran, Andrew V. McLaglen, this film features sizzling special effects and exciting locations in Texas and Wyoming.
