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

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 »

Goofs

Dr. Huebling tells Walters and Fabian that the new missile can hit any target in the U.S. from a launch base in Trinidad, and shows them the wall map with arrows indicating strike distances. But the arrows on the map start in Jamaica, not Trinidad, which is over 1000 miles further to the southeast. See more »

Ford and Hayworth together again...romantic intrigue but routine melodrama...
24 April 2001 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

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.
