Today is Joanne Dru’s birthday. So today’s a good day to report that Southwest Passage (1954) is coming to MGM’s MOD program. No release date is listed.
This Edward Small production, released through United Artists, has a great cast: Rod Cameron, Joanne Dru, John Ireland, John Dehner, Guinn “Big Boy” Williams and Morris Ankrum. It was directed by Ray Nazarro, an old hand at this sort of thing. It’s got cowboys and camels. And it was originally in 3-D (and Pathecolor).
Dru and Ireland were husband and wife when Southwest Passage was released. They divorced in 1957.
Thanks to John Knight for the info.
