Storyline

A tramp steamer lands sick crewman Jake Davis on rubber-growing island Oraka, from which voluptuous, bedroom-eyed saloon singer Coral is about to be ejected because "men like her too much." But Coral's slimy boss Cognac gets her a reprieve so she can learn Jake's secret. In the process, Coral gets a bit too fond of Jake, who (suspected of wartime collaboration ) resolves on new efforts to clear himself; but more complications arise.

A great film for a rainy afternoon...
9 March 1999 | by (Eugene, Oregon) – See all my reviews

This film is set in the turbulence and sleazy environment of the south seas just after world war II. It is really a bit underdone, even though today's people may find it implausible, but I think that Shelly Winters, as the bar girl Coral, is very close to reality. I identify with her easily... Frank Lovejoy was an often under-used and very talented man, and here he is the strong lead, interacting well with both the environment and the "lady" in question ... And very believable in that role. As with all the films I like it HAS a story and that story, though sleasy, is well told. I like this film. I saved it on my VCR ... I watch it, even now, on rainy afternoons.
