Storyline

In the spring of 1945, World War II is coming to a close. Roger Halyard, a dignified, strait-laced Englishmen, lives on a South Sea atoll with his three daughters, Gloria, Hester and Violet, along with the housekeeper, Thelma, who has raised the girls since childhood. Other than their father, the girls have never seen another man. Halyard is informed that 1500 U.S. Marines will soon arrive to establish an air base on the island. Halyard is rather apprehensive over the prospect of his daughters, who have never met another man, being thrown together with 1500 Marines who haven't seen a woman in months.

the girls of Pleasure Island
13 February 2014 | by (Edinburgh,Scotland) – See all my reviews

Oh Yes TMC please get this film,or whats left of it,onto some kind of recording and have it released for viewing,.I realize that the type of film used when this picture was made may have deteriorated and ended up floating around in the ether,but it would be a great shame if it was lost for ever,maybe it's lying around in the Paramount Studio cellars just waiting to be re discovered. I have contacted Audrey Dalton and she thinks that the film has probably either been lost or scrapped,but it seems a shame that such a harmless pleasant picture that has no 'smut', innuendo or even bad language as seems to be the norm nowadays is just conveniently forgotten,shame really.
