A Smoldering Story of Passion and Desire
22 July 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Director Richard Wilson creates a super heated atmosphere of desire in this erotic story set in an exotic locale. Esther Williams reveals a different side to herself as she sets the screen afire in this film. She is all woman and smolders with a sensuality seldom captured in cinema. Jeff Chandler is excellent playing opposite her volcanic beauty. Williams not only proves herself as an actor of consequence, she seems to actually become the good time girl looking for passion and all she can get of it. It is a memorable performance and one that no one will forget who witnesses it explode like a fire ball before their eyes.
