Description
Drawn from a 1955 novel by Alec Waugh, this 1957 potboiler is set on a West Indian island paradise, where wealthy aspiring politician (James Mason) foments trouble by opposing charismatic union leader Harry Belafonte—and plots murder when he suspects his wife of adultery. His sister-in-law (Joan Fontaine) is drawn to the union leader, his sister (Joan Collins) is engaged to the governor's son, and a governor's aide is conflicted over his "scandalous affair" with a native woman (Dorothy Dandridge). Result: one of the most talked-about films of its day, particularly for its interracial screen kiss. Extras include audio commentary by film historian John Stanley, the documentary Dorothy Dandridge: Little Girl Lost, and the theatrical trailer.
