Gorgeous-looking film with Esther as a good-time girl and Chandler as a man hiding from his own café-society sleazy past, brought together by an accident that lands Esther and playboy Carlos Thompson on a Mediterranean island. The stars and the scenery look grand in Technicolor, and the film is very sexy, if inconsequential. There's a nice subplot in which a jealous local youth keeps shooting at everybody from his boat because Podesta won't marry him. Williams and Chandler make a hot pair, and it makes me even more regretful that she later talked trash about him in her memoirs. It's not even as if she had a score to settle. Carlos Thompson looks amazing, but he seems to be dubbed by another actor.
