Steamy sizzling - Harlow outdoes Gable, 20 February 2002
Author: A M BOYD from USA

Red Dust without a doubt is the best movie Harlow and Gable ever made together or separate! Harlow is magnificent and looks like a dream. She puts Gable in his place every time he utters a word. But together, they are magic - such chemistry! The rest of the cast just fades when these two melt together. Two scenes that are memorable - Harlow bathing in the water barrel and cleaning out the parrot's cage. Wow! She is dynamite. There is no other blonde bombshell that even comes close to this original!
