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.

Mostly enjoyable but that voice!
30 October 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While I generally enjoyed this film, I must say that one actress in this film really didn't work for me. Dorothy Bromiley played the youngest girl in the film. While she was a lot older than the character she played, this didn't bother me--she was able to be convincing as a teenager. But, her voice....wow was it tough on my ears. She sounded a lot like Glynnis Johns but even younger and more piercing. Maybe it's just me and my wife, but the voice was tough for both of us to take.

The film is an enjoyable but tough to believe little fantasy set during WWII. A man (Leo Genn) has moved to a tiny island paradise and has three VERY lonely daughters. When he learns that 1500 US Marines are going to be living there, he is NOT pleased. As for the daughters, they seem amazingly horny--especially the oldest and youngest. The middle girl is a bit more sensible and she falls for nice-guy Don Taylor. Can the father manage to keep his daughters' virginity?! The film is amiable but not especially inspired. Enjoyable fluff--and nothing more.
