9 May 2003 | gregcouture
An early Fifties Paramount "programmer."
This film was not favored with a notably munificent budget but cinematographer Lionel Lindon's work, using the Technicolor process that may still have been three-strip (around the time the transition was being made to a single strip negative), camouflaged that fact quite well, principally aided by the ravishing red-headed beauty of Miss Arlene Dahl. The whole enterprise looked very studio-bound - no location work in the Caribbean here - and the pulpy plot didn't give the cast of professionals, including leading man Ray Milland, much to work with. But, oh my!, Miss Dahl is such a lovely camera subject. It does not appear to be available on video and I can't recall seeing it scheduled on a TV broadcast after I caught it as a supporting feature at the neighborhood Bay Theater in Pacific Palisades, California, after its initial run.
