Storyline

Millie Stope lives with her grandfather on a remote island. Her grandfather fled there for political reasons. But they're not alone. An escaped prisoner, Nicholas, is terrorizing them, and further more, he's interested in Mllie. John Woolfolk has lost his wife in an accident and tries to forget by sailing in his yacht aimlessly on the ocean. By chance he drops anchor in a bay of that island. He soon finds out that something is wrong on that island, and furthermore, he falls in love with Millie, who sees in him a chance to get off that island. But Nicholas has threatened her with rape and murder if she tries to escape, and he has found out about her plans... Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>

This film takes place in Georgia.
20 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Firstly, I agree with all the other reviews. My main reason for posting this comment is to clarify this takes place off the south Georgia coast. It's no War and Peace but is a fun viewing, expertly done by the very young director King Vidor. Also little known Silent Screen Siren, Virgina Valli, is particularly lovely and effective Southern Heroine, a real precursor to Blanche DuBois, living among her ruined finery. The locales in this film look surprisingly authentic. As a native Georgian, I have spent many vacations along the coast. I would imagine it was likely to have had exterior shots done on location. The set for the delapidated plantation house was also beautifully rendered. The exterior sets were also excellent.
