Sir Arthur Blake has inherited title and lands from his brother. He also has his orphaned nephew Benjamin working for him as a bonded servant. While he believes the lad was born out of wedlock and so cannot claim the inheritance, he is taking no chances. Benjamin eventually rebels against his uncle and sets sail to try and make his fortune. This may enable him to return to prove his claim to being the rightful heir to the estate. Written by

Last film Frances Farmer was in before her first (October, 1942) of what would be a series of arrests, and jailing and psychiatric confinements in both California and her home state of Washington (her mother, Lillian, became her legal guardian from 1943-1953) that would last until 1950. See more »
About 52 minutes into the movie, Ben (Tyrone Power) gets out of the water to talk to Eve (Gene Tierney) and places his knife and an oyster shell on the rocks. Eve dives in the water and Ben follows without having retrieved his knife but in the next scene, he is shown underwater chasing Eve with the knife between his teeth. See more »
This is an outstanding movie. The four leads- Tyrone Power, Gene Tierney, Frances Farmer, and George Sanders are perfect in thir roles. Gene Tierney was only 21 or 22 when she made this movie, and she is breathtaking. At 28 or 29 and after some personal problems, Frances Farmer had lost a little of the incredible beauty and youthful allure she displayed in Come and Get It, but still is a great example of icy blond beauty. It's a shame that immediately after this movie, her personal problems really became severe, because she could have become one of the truly great actresses. From seeing Power in this movie, it's hard to believe he would be dead 16 years later at the age of 44.
