Romance Novel View of the 18th century British West Indies
15 December 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

It's sad that the plot from Caribbean seems to be taken from a romance novel. Sad because at the time and place of this film, just a few years before the civil rights revolution, a film about a slave revolt would have been considered a classic had it not been attached to such a hokey plot.

John Payne plays a hunter who sees pirate Cedric Hardwicke bury a treasure and gets caught doing it. Normally that would mean Payne's quick demise, but Hardwicke has a use for him. The ship's surgeon gives Payne a facial scar needed to pass as the nephew of his mortal enemy Francis L. Sullivan who was once Hardwicke's partner and who cheated him out of his share and even had him sold into Spanish slavery and took Hardwicke's daughter to raise as his own and she grew up to be Arlene Dahl.

Now pirate Hardwicke who looks like he makes a good living at the pirate trade is still out to get his ex-partner and Payne is to be his inside man.

Sullivan looks like he's having a great old time hamming it up as the villain without any appreciable redeeming qualities. Still it's not enough to save the film. Neither are some interesting portrayals by Clarence Muse and Woody Strode as leaders of the slave revolt.

Caribbean is a great romance novel view of the 18th century with Payne and Dahl decked out like romance novel leads. Costumes and scenery are great and even greater in technicolor. But what could have been a great film on slavery in the British West Indies gets the budget treatment with a hokey plot courtesy of Paramount's B picture unit.
