| Island Bliss!
For John Cassavetes and Virginia Maskell, it's love at first sight. She's been on a small sailing party, but John convinces her to leave her friends, marry him, and live on the island on which they met. It seems like an ideal life, and after John buys the island and comes up with blueprints for a house, they settle in.

If you like movies that don't have much conflict, you'll be very pleased with Our Virgin Island, because the newlyweds really don't have many obstacles in their path of marital bliss. Sure, there are meddling in-laws, but what's a little argument with your mother when you live on a deserted island with your husband and helpful island natives? Among the latter are Sidney Poitier and his girlfriend Ruby Dee, who were previously paired together in Edge of the City, also with John Cassavetes. Sidney takes on a very un-Sidney-Poitier-like role, as he dons a Jamaican accent and enjoys all aspects of island life. So, if you want to hear him talking differently, and if you want to hear him sing the most horrendous off-key rendition of "The Wedding March" in history, rent Our Virgin Island. It's harmless and sweet, like a better version of Blue Lagoon.
