A woman secretly suffering from kleptomania is hypnotized in an effort to cure her condition. Soon afterwards, she is found at the scene of a murder with no memory of how she got there and seemingly no way to prove her innocence.
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

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.

Ford and Hayworth together again...romantic intrigue but routine melodrama...
After their sizzling triumph in 'Gilda' ('46), Columbia paired Rita Hayworth with Glenn Ford a few times hoping to ignite some of the same kind of sparks. Unfortunately, 'Affair in Trinidad' is only moderately successful in keeping you hooked on the slender storyline. It is really the chemistry of the two stars that makes more of an impression than the plot--which is rather routine. Ford comes to Trinidad to find out the truth behind his brother-in-law's murder. The on-again, off-again romantic feud is finally resolved when the killer is brought to justice. This was Hayworth's comeback film after divorcing Prince Aly Khan and Columbia was hoping to rekindle public interest in her with a torrid sort of role. The results were too tepid and it only did fairly well at the box-office. Vincent Sherman's direction keeps things moving smoothly--but the overall result is a disappointing melodrama.
