Storyline

Sir Harry Oakes is a wealthy magnate, living amongst the British aristocrats who have made their home in the Bahamas just prior to World War II. Their small community is one of privilege and status and when Sir Harry's beloved daughter marries a handsome but penniless gigolo, Alfred De Marigny, Sir Harry is outraged by the union. But before Sir Harry can break up the marriage he is brutally and viciously murdered and his son-in-law is the prime suspect. Nothing is as it appears and Sir Harry's death soon points towards intrigue and deception on an international scale. Written by .

terrible movie
1 May 2008 | by karmanghiaSee all my reviews

Are you kidding me? While on vacation in a friend's condo, we came across this video. I have to admit, we were groaning and howling enough that I could have missed some redeeming aspect. Who on earth played the daughter? Was that she on the yacht early on complaining about her European fiancé? Did she have a sudden personality change after meeting AA? The costumes were ludicrous. Two of the silliest scenes...when Rod Steiger goes to the newlyweds' place (where they had the double bed out in the center of the room) and literally tries to drag her from between the sheets and, earlier, ga ga over Armande, when she returns home giddy, and skips around the foyer, gayly pulling a flower from the arrangement, all to some perfectly horrid music. The plot was disjointed, the movie terribly edited, and omg I just don't know what else to say.
