The dates given for the hurricane (according to the teletype notices) are Monday and Tuesday, August 17th and 18th. Those exact dates match with an actual Hurricane Hilda, which struck in 1964; and also coincide with the landfall of category 5 Hurricane Camille in 1969, on a Sunday-Monday. See more »
Hurricane is about a large hurricane in the gulf of Mexico and several groups of people that get stuck in it. This movie is all about people and not about hurricanes so don't look for a lot of special effects. There were many TV actors from the 60s and 70s in this film and it was nice to see them in early roles. Some were partial casts from very well known TV shoes like Dallas and The Waltons. I'm not really sure why this film is part of the Classic Disaster Movies DVD because it didn't really say much about the disaster. I didn't view this as a disaster film, much less a classic disaster film. Pretty good technically for the era it was made, but again, it was more about people than disasters.
