Smoke Jumpers stars Dan Duryea as the head man of a group of death-defying firefighters. Duryea and his crew are called upon to combat forest fires by parachuting into the various woodland conflagrations. One of Duryea's crew (Richard Jaeckel) accuses him of being a coward, but Duryea proves his worth when he and his men are cut off from rescue. Dean Jagger and Joan Leslie co-stars in this hour-long adaptation of the 1952 feature film Red Skies of Montana. Smoke Jumpers aired November 14, 1956, on the weekly TV anthology The 20th Century Fox Hour.
