Trivia

The company doctor was a local physician named Francois Duvalier who the next year would be elected President of Haiti and remain in office until 1971, and whose government was so dictatorial, murderous and, especially, corrupt that it spawned a new term--"kleptocracy". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bill Buchanan: [narrating] If you're a tourist on vacation, there isn't a more colorful spot in the West Indies than Haiti. You'll fall in love with Port-au-Prince. You'll shop in its famous markets where you can buy anything from a pair of lizard shoes to a live goat and you'll sail into the very harbor that Columbus first sailed into aboard the Santa Maria. But if you've got sunken treasure fever like I have, you'll spend most of your time in Haiti underwater.

Rosemary Bow is breathtaking
28 February 2002 | by AtlantinSee all my reviews

After seeing The Golden Mistress, I can not understand why she did not become a really big star!

The story line is totally politically incorrect but the movie is a vehicle to show the photogenic actress in various stages of undress.

Really, worth a viewing.
