Floods of Fear caused floods of praise!
14 September 2011 | by (KCK) – See all my reviews

What a picture! Howard Keel taking on a major flood, several arch enemies and a girl to boot. Everything about this picture was simply amazing and fantastic. You felt the characters' desperation as they fought against each other and against the raging flood waters. Keel was in his element in a way that he never was before except maybe in his dual role in "Callaway Went Thataway." Granted, I have drooled over Keel in many of his musicals and still get a pleasant shiver down my spine when I hear him sing and belt out "Bless Your Beautiful Hide," but it were these dramatic roles that really set him apart. I only wish he made more of them. The final fight was one for the record books and Keel's athleticism throughout the entire film was tremendous. I recently saw "Floods of Fear" on TCM and can honestly say that for the first time in years, when the movie ended I nearly screamed. I wanted more Keel and more of the action. It was that kind of film. Good job, Keel and bless YOUR beautiful hide!
