Storyline

A girl, Carol whom the audience is quickly informed "has been around," and her father arrive to take over the business management of an island in the Bahamas owned by Adrian Ainsworth, descendant of many ancestors who have handled it over the years to the satisfaction of its 250 native residents. He is married to a woman who stays away from the island because she is lonely when there. Adrian doesn't want Carol or her father there, and they don't want to be there. Romance can't be lurking far behind the beautiful sunset. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

This ought to be given the full restoration treatment...
4 January 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

BAHAMA PASSAGE is one of the most beautiful examples of 1940s era color photography, bathing the island scenery in the warm glow of magnificent Technicolor. Unfortunately, it's more memorable for its visual beauty than for any other reason--and this includes the pairing of Madeleine Carroll and Sterling Hayden as co-stars, both at their physical peak and photographed to advantage. Carroll's blonde beauty is emphasized in every close-up and Hayden's physique gets close inspection since he's shirtless most of the time.

Unfortunately, the storyline isn't so memorable. In fact, I have a hard time recalling what it was all about except for reading some of these other comments. I haven't seen the film in years, but the impression lingers that it was a nice bit of "escapist" entertainment, well photographed with scenic beauty but without any lasting story values.

At any rate, it ought to be given full restoration so that fans of Carroll and Hayden can see them in a film that exhibits their chemistry shortly before they were wed.
