Yep, it is John Wayne (Chance Buckman) again only this time he hung up his spurs for a read suit. A television announcer asks if that is just fancy showmanship?
Jay C. Flippen (Jack Lomax) gets to do dangerous things like picking restroom colors.
Jim Hutton (Greg Parker) takes Katharine Ross (Tish Buckman) the daughter of Chance Buckman to an oil well fire. And we all know what happens to women that Greg takes to a fire. See Jim Hutton and John Wayne again together in The Green Berets (1968) ASIN: 6300267830.
The biggest surprise was seeing Bruce Cabot as Joe Horn. Think real hard and look real close. Can you say King Kong - Special Edition (1933) ASIN: 078062565X.
This film has all the things you look for in a John Wayne movie and then some.

It's fashionable these days (perhaps because of the vogue for "political correctness") to deride John Wayne and all his works, but the fact is that he was among the last actors to stick steadfastly to the notion that movies were, and should remain, family fare. And even though he admitted in so many words, "I play John Wayne in every picture regardless of the character," such a tendency isn't necessarily a handicap: what is important that an actor displaying it be certain that he chooses the right scripts. For Wayne, "The Hellfighters" was one such.
The film was loosely based on the experiences of Red Adair and his Wild Well Company (they served as technical advisors, and many viewers may remember that twenty years later Adair was still at work, helping to quench the Kuwait oil fires), and chronicles the adventures of Chance Buckman (Wayne) and his Houston-based outfit with a series of fires, gradually building in seriousness and difficulty, tied together by the dual romance of Chance with his long-estranged wife Madelyn Randolph (Miles) and their daughter Tish (Ross) with Chance's young protege Greg Parker (Hutton). (This aspect somewhat echoes those which occur in Wayne's "McLintock," and viewers may enjoy watching the two as a double feature.) Madelyn left Chance many years before when she found she couldn't bear his work, though they kept getting together for some time, and Chance's old friend, oilman Jack Lomax (Jay C. Flippen), flatly states that they've "never been out of love" with each other. When Chance is badly injured at a fire site, Greg tracks down his daughter and brings her to his side, fearing that he may not live.

Its been said that there are no bad John Wayne movies. "Hellfighters" is certainly one of them. The film looks and sounds (music wise) like a 1960's TV movie. Frequent "fade-to-blacks" between scenes leave the viewer anticipating an upcoming TV commercial. The script is lackluster, the dialoge is wooden... ah, but so what! Watch the cars whizzing by on the freeway outside the windows of Wayne's office. They all go the same speed and you keep seeing the same red car every few seconds. Yup, its a studio backdrop and a pretty lame one at that. Watch while Vera Miles drives Katherine Ross from the airport. The car turns before she turns the wheel. The car stops before she applies the brakes. This is fun stuff! But somehow, this film still works as pure entertainment and with The Duke heading the cast, how can you not love it? The special effects of burning oil well fires are great and worth the price of the video. No miniatures here. No matte backgrounds. It hauntingly foreshadows the oil fires of Kuwait we grew familiar with while watching Desert Storm on CNN. I give this film five stars, simply because of its cult appeal. A film so bad, that its actually very good!

As a tribute to oil-field fire fighting legend Red Adair, this incredibly formula 70's action picture (think Airport) over loads with talent then takes an extra 30 minutes or so just so everyone has something to say.
Soapy story starts with hard-as-nails Chance Buckman (John Wayne), who fights fires with a vengeance-so far his profession has cost him his marriage and distanced him from his only child, Tish (Katherine Ross), a headstrong young filly. Toss in Buckman's protegee, Greg Parker (Jim Hutton), the young buck, himself a fearless firefighter by day, ferocious playboy by night.
Will Tish's re-entry to her father's world upturn the apple cart? Will she tame Greg and settle into a union the Cleaver's might envy? Will passing years cause Chance to take a softer look at the world? Will he return to the woman he left behind?
Or will their entire world be turned upside down in that next big fire up ahead?
Enjoy.
