Storyline

When Steve Emery arrives in Trinidad at the urgent request of his brother, he is stunned to find that his brother has not only been murdered, but that his brother's wife Chris is succumbing to the seduction attempts of the man who quite possibly is the murderer. His feelings are further exacerbated when he discovers that he, too, is becoming strongly attracted to Chris, who is a steamy cabaret singer. She, in turn, is playing off one against the other while betraying the secrets of both men to the police, for whom she is secretly working. Written by Alfred Jingle and Albert Sanchez Moreno

Trivia

The song "Rum and Coca Cola" by The Andrews Sisters was originally a calypso song composed and performed by a Trinidad calypso band in the mid-1940s. At that time the American military maintained two bases in Trinidad. The song is about the soldiers from these bases and how a mother and daughter provided "pleasure" for the "Yankee dollar". Actually, if one walked around Port of Spain--Trinidad's capital city--during this period it was a common sight to see American soldiers and sailors with local women at hotels and bars. See more »

Goofs

When Chris is searching Max Fabian's guest house, she puts a book with writing on the cover on top her sheer sheath. When they cut to close-up of the book, it has no writing on the cover. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Between North and South America lie the islands of the Caribbean. Colorful and exotic! Once remote and little known, history is forcing them out of obscurity into the current of world events. Important among these islands is the British colony: Trinidad.

Affair in Trinidad - Better than "Gilda" ***
29 May 2008 | by edwagreenSee all my reviews

Above average film starring Glenn Ford and Rita Hayworth once more.

In this one, Ford comes to Trinidad just in time to learn that his brother as supposedly committed suicide and meets Hayworth, the widow.

Hayworth is fascinating in the role and an absolute joy to watch. She can do some really heavy duty acting here and then break into a wonderful song and dance routine. Both her singing and dancing are up to par here as well as a wonderful plot involving spies. Hayworth has been asked by the government to infiltrate the ring and it appears that she is very much against her brother-in-law in an attempt to shield him from apparent danger.

Alexander Scourby is excellent in the villain role.
