Storyline

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

Trivia

Rita Hayworth practiced hard to try to do her own singing, but finally musical director Morris Stoloff hired Jo Ann Greer to dub Rita's voice. Greer and Hayworth worked well together and she later dubbed Rita in Miss Sadie Thompson (1953) and Pal Joey (1957). See more »

Quotes

Trinidad Band: [singing] 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.
Chris Emery: [singing] 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.

Rita Hayworth And Glenn Ford Can Not Repeat The Success Of "Gilda"
20 October 2002 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

During the time that this 1952 film was being filmed, its star, Rita Hayworth was thinking of terminating her contract with Columbia Pictures. Why didn't she? It would've prevented her from making films like this. This film plays like an obvious attempt to repeat the big box office success of "Gilda", a 1946 Columbia Picture starring Hayworth as she is reteamed with her "Gilda" costar Glenn Ford. The farfetched plot has nightclub singer Hayworth and her brother-in-law (Ford) joining forces to track down her husband's murderer. In the box office results, the film was a disappointment and it eventually inspired longtime Columbia Pictures contract players Hayworth and Ford to pursue film careers as freelances.
