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
The song "Rum and Coca Cola" by The Andrews Sisters was originally a calypso song composed and performed by a Trinidad calypso band in the mid-1940s. At that time the American military maintained two bases in Trinidad. The song is about the soldiers from these bases and how a mother and daughter provided "pleasure" for the "Yankee dollar". Actually, if one walked around Port of Spain - Trinidad's capital city - during this period it was a common sight to see American soldiers and sailors with local women at hotels and bars. See more »

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.
