Pilot Widmark menaced by smugglers, hurricane

PRINCETON – The next Widmark Wednesday movie features Princeton’s own Richard Widmark portraying an ex-Navy pilot who loves his new private-sector flying job until he learns his boss is a drug smuggler.

The film begins at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Princeton Public Library. Admission is free.

In the 1949 drama, Widmark’s anti-hero character also finds himself in a touchy love triangle, before ultimately attempting to redeem himself during a violent hurricane.

Co-stars are Linda Darnell, Veronica Lake, John Russell and Gary Merrill.

Widmark, a 1932 graduate of Princeton High School, acted in more than 70 movies from 1947 until 1991.
