Originally released in 3-D, the film covers the post-Revolutionary War of Dr. Carlos Morales, the son of an indentured servant, who has been raised and educated by General Darby, and made legal executor of the Georgia estate when Darby dies. He is opposed by Nancy Darby who tries to break the will and also her father's desire to set up a group of free medical clinics for the poor to be overseen by Carlos. The true culprits behind her opposition are her fiancé, Harvey Bristol and his father, Dr. Bristol, who are in reality preying on the Darby holdings. A plague that hits Savannah is thrown in the mix.

One commenter said Sangaree was noted for nothing more than its 3-D effects. Another said it was a dull turkey. I disagree. What I discovered when viewing it on TV years ago, was a charming period-piece set in a most charming venue: Savannah! The charm was no doubt bolstered by my having just moved to Savannah when I first saw the film. But the filming is magnificent, in my humble opinion. A little artistic in its backgrounds, perhaps, but nonetheless charming, and at least one charming film about Savannah needs to endure, so looks likt this one is it. The color, sets, scenery, and costuming are magnificent, and the photography and editing are cleaqr and consistent.
To instantly pooh-pooh this classic film on dubious technical claims, is unfair. Everyone who likes romance, history, Americana, and beautiful filming should see this movie. The emotional tone is often laid back and relaxing, but that was the way of life in the sunny old South.
And what fine casting! Moreover, Arlene Dahl is - in my opinion - the only non-Southern actress who could really do a Southern accent... ( and she was from Minnesota, no less!)
The mere word "Sangaree" will forever carry me back to the charm and grace of fine old Savannah.
Sangaree ranks right up there with my favorite nostalgic films.
