A girl, Carol whom the audience is quickly informed "has been around," and her father arrive to take over the business management of an island in the Bahamas owned by Adrian Ainsworth, descendant of many ancestors who have handled it over the years to the satisfaction of its 250 native residents.

One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by MCA ever since. This film's initial telecast took place in Chicago Monday 5 January 1959 on WBBM (Channel 2), followed by Omaha 29 January 1959 on KETV (Channel 7); it first aired in both Los Angeles and Asheville 16 September 1959 on KNXT (Channel 2) & WLOS (Channel 13), followed by Philadelphia 29 September 1959 on WCAU (Channel 10), by Johnstown 12 October 1959 on WJAC (Channel 6), by Pittsburgh 15 October 1959 on KDKA (Channel 2), by Detroit 28 October 1959 on WJBK (Channel 2), by Milwaukee 17 December 1959 on WITI (Channel 6), and by Phoenix 26 December 1959 on KVAR (Channel 12). At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. See more »
Sterling Hayden's name is misspelled "Stirling" in the opening credits. See more »
As I understand it, both of these films are among the Paramount films purchased by Universal. They are both fabulously beautiful films with wonderful casts and it is a shame that UNIVERSAL does not issue them as one of their DOUBLE FEATURE dvds. It is a shame that two films of this quality and historic interest are not available. Both of these films are exceptional. They have color photography and location filming unusual for the time (1941). Both have big name supporting players of interest, especially Dorothy Dandridge. Mr Hayden was encumbered with the irksome title 'the most beautiful man in the movies' at this time. Fortunately for his employers, he is a good enough actor that his annoyance does not show.
