Jeff Chandler and Jane Russell's performances were natural and believable while their chemistry was incredibly steamy. Russell was able to give her character strength and independence while at the same time showing her vulnerability and longing for love. Chandler had a low smooth sexy voice which drew you into his portrayal of the brooding Arizona miner. His singing voice was equally sexy but not often heard. Having him sing the theme song for this movie was a stroke of genius and set you up for the performance to follow. I have to admit that at the beginning I was routing for Dan Duryea, having been a long time Duryea fan, but Jeff was the man and they all knew it. Duryea's portrayal of the alcoholic doctor with a heart of gold was his forte. He was at his best portraying men at their worst, but this character had a soft side that he was able to seamlessly incorporate. This was an underrated film and deserves to have a second chance and a second audience. People have been asking for it to be available on DVD for some time. I hope that it happens soon so that I can add it to my collection.
I hope that it will soon be available on DVD...What a classy couple they were together I have seen this movie back when it came out in theaters in the 50's and looking forward to someday having it in my collection of great movies.
This is another example of two great actor's that worked well together and made the story believable. This movie held me spellbound from beginning to end. Another movie I would love to add to my collection. When will it become available for home video?

Jane Russell & Jeff Chandler ignite the screen!!
1955's "Foxfire" has several things going for it -- mainly the star power of Jane Russell and Jeff Chandler. They are very sexy together and their chemistry permeates this film. Their performances are subtle yet resonate with honest emotion. Both actors have a natural style of acting which allows the viewer to swallow the script's melodramatic clichés without rejecting the whole scenario of a New York socialite impulsively marrying an Arizona miner. Here Russell once again shows that she was in the ranks of Mitchum & Gable -- two of her screen co-stars -- and that she knew how to make her acting look effortless and completely natural. However, given all the salacious publicity she received, rarely was her talent or her charismatic screen presence truly appreciated during her heyday. Here her usual tough and hard-boiled persona is toned downed and she gives a performance showing sensitivity and vulnerability. She is completely believable in a role that was originally intended for June Allyson! Chandler too is quite good: silent yet complex and he shows these characteristics without the histrionics typically used by actors in similar roles (i.e. Robert Stack). The gorgeous Technicolor enhances the Arizona scenery and the great Dan Duryea offers fine support as an alcoholic doctor in love with Russell. Mara Corday also shines in the small role of Duryea's nurse. "Foxfire" is not as stylistic or as over-the-top fun as Douglas Sirks' classic Universal sudsers, but very good in it's own right. The opening credits with Chandler singing the theme song (co-written by Chandler and Henry Mancini) sets the tone for a very good romantic drama starring two of the 1950s most underrated and sexiest stars. This film needs to be released on DVD!!
