In the Victorian period, two children are shipwrecked on a tropical island in the South Pacific. With no adults to guide them, the two make a simple life together, unaware that sexual maturity will eventually intervene.
Twice in the opening sequence, Dale (Brooke Shields) slides off the race course on a corner, and the wide view shows her race car hitting a hay bale barricade, but both times in a close-up shot inserted between the long views, her car hits a barricade made of tires. See more »
Good movie. Characters seemed to be correct for the period it was sat in.
I enjoyed this movie very much. It was set in a period where women had limitations. Dale (Shield) was raised so it seems by a father who allowed her more freedom, yet she was very naive. As love stories go, I thought it was true to form. In fact, I recently bought a copy of this film and watched it again today. I enjoyed it just as much today as I had years ago. As I was watching it I could not help thinking that I had seen Jaffar (Lambert) in some other films. The person he reminded me of was the brother and Frenchman in Timeline. Later, my daughter signed on to this site and looked Mr. Lambert up. I was right. I think he is a very good actor.
