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 »

quit comparing...........both are good, 30 December 2015
Author: rickdumesnil-55203 from Canada

Will people learn to stop comparing.....these movies were made 6 years apart and set out its goal of entertaining us to the hilt. Rita Hayworth alone is enough to watch it all the way....and the black and white cinematography is excellent. Yes the storyline is thin but it still is intriguing and well done. What a good job also done by the supporting actors...even Juanit Moores role turned out to be very important. You think i left out Glenn Ford....no way...some say it is wooden acting....no way. Ford could act without making physical gestures....just look at the expressions on his face. He is simply awesome. OH and by the way the ending is fine for me and i am really happy to own this very entertaining DVD
