When Steve Emery arrives in Trinidad at the urgent request of his brother, he is stunned to find that his brother has not only been murdered, but that his brother's wife Chris is succumbing to the seduction attempts of the man who quite possibly is the murderer. His feelings are further exacerbated when he discovers that he, too, is becoming strongly attracted to Chris, who is a steamy cabaret singer. She, in turn, is playing off one against the other while betraying the secrets of both men to the police, for whom she is secretly working. Written by
Alfred Jingle and Albert Sanchez Moreno
In the time period that the story was set, America in fact maintained two naval bases in Trinidad, one at the western peninsula called Chagaramas and the other in the east of the country, called Wallerfield. They were closed in 1962, the year the country gained independence from Great Britain. There is still a lot of evidence of their presence to this day i.e., airstrips, the deep water harbor, and several still-standing buildings. Chagaramas is now host to a thriving boating industry. It is well known in the sailing world as a shelter during the hurricane season, and hundreds of yachts and private craft are anchored there every year. It is considered to be out of the Caribbean's hurricane belt. See more »

A chick-a-chick boom, a chick-a-chick boom / Announces your in the room with the Trinidad Lady. / A chick-a-chick boom, a chick-a-chick boom / Your ticker goes boom-boom-boom for the Trinidad Lady.
It's only that I do what I love and love what I do / Can't help the mad desire that's deep inside of you. / You realize the fault isn't mine, you are to blame / You want what you can't have, and you're just the same.

I am flabbergasted by the low imdb average for this film! From the opening credits onward I was riveted by this film. Like Steve Emery (Glenn Ford) I was fixated on finding out what happened to the late Mr. Emery. This film has intrigue, suspense, and no short amount of sultriness thanks to the gorgeous Rita Hayworth (Chris). Hayworth also performs two stunning dance numbers. Mention should also be made of the terrific performances turned in by the actors who play the motley crew led by Max Fabian (Alexander Scourby). The only drawback to the movie is the absurdness of Fabian's plot. He was helping the Nazis secure launching bases for possibly attacking U.S. cities. This is pure propaganda. The Nazis had no such plan. They couldn't even take Paris. Perhaps this plot point was developed to scare Americans into supporting the Allied campaign against the Nazis. Still Affair in Trinidad is a terrific suspense thriller, 9/10.
