For those who love fairy tales, Field-of-Dreams type movies, this movie is a "Must-See."
Filmed in the beautiful British Virgin Islands, a charming fairy-tale type story of guy who meets girl, seemingly loses her, then gets her to literally jump overboard and marry him! After buying a small, uninhabited island, Cassavetes and his "Man-Friday" (Poitier) build a dream house for???? The newlyweds? Their family? Poitier? Really a truly enjoyable little picture: you buy the premise, you "buy" the island--and the story!
