Larry Karaszewski on

Red Sky at Morning

Released 1971
Distributor Universal Pictures

Director James Goldstone’s 1971 film takes its title from an ancient mariner’s rhyme, “Red sky at morning, sailor take warning” – the movie is no less compelling than that ominous rhyme, the story of a teen uprooted to a lonely town in New Mexico at the beginning of World War II. Richard Thomas plays the boy who has to grow up fast and the beautiful Claire Bloom is his conflicted mom.
