Ring of Fire
-- Combination crime and disaster thriller starts with a police officer (David Janssen) being taken hostage by marauding teenagers (Frank Gorshin and Joyce Taylor) who are captured in the Oregon wilderness where one of their cigarettes causes a forest fire which threatens to engulf a nearby town. Writer-director Andrew L. Stone's busy scenario shifts abruptly from the nasty teen menaces to the low-budget conflagration ending with Janssen at the throttle of a trainload of panicked townspeople in the fiery climax. Much menace, some stylized violence and occasional sexual innuendo. (A-III) (br)
