Storyline

Tony and Felix own a tramp boat, and sail around the Caribbean doing odd jobs and drinking a lot. They agree to ferry the beautiful but passportless Irena to another island. They both fall for her, leading to betrayal and a break-up of their partnership. Tony takes a job on a cargo ship. After a collision he finds himself trapped below deck with time running out (the ship is aflame), and only Felix, whom he hates and has sworn to kill, left to save him. Written by John Oswalt <jao@jao.com>

Is Bob In Lov With Jack?
20 February 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a very curious film.There seems to me a love affair going on between Jack and Bob.Jack is really jealous of Rita for having lured Bob away.It has to be said that Jack must be a better proposition for Bob given the rather aged appearance of Rita.One gets the impression that Rita is doing an impersonation of herself a dozen years before in Gilda.Alas time has taken its toll.Ritas figure for one is rather too matronly and her face shows too many worry lines.All rather sad.It is a strange film in that it suddenly changes tack with a completely different plot.Rita and Bob disappear for about half an hour.The second half is better than the drab and predictable first half.It also has the advantage of the presence of Herbert Lom and Bonar Cellano.Definitely only a film for the fans of the three stars.
