Red Skies of Montana DVD Review

The title of Joseph M. Newman’s Red Skies of Montana might suggest a picturesque western romance, but it’s actually nothing of the sort. Instead, this 1952 drama focuses on men who are “smoke jumpers,” men who parachute into otherwise impassable areas where fires are raging in order to contain them.
