Steve D Entertaining story but comes to a stop every time it goes to the island. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/23/24 Full Review kevin w Tyrone Power was 26 and Gene Tierney was 20 when this paean to young love was filmed, one of the few times the Hollywood formula of emphasizing the love story was actually spot on the money. So there's the main plotline about a young Englishman denied his rightful due because of injustice (finely delivered by George Sanders as one of his best bad guys) and seeking redress, and that's okay, but the story hits its stride when he lands on this island paradise. John Carradine surprises as, wait for it, the best buddy (I've NEVER seen him play it, and he's quite good)! And there's Tierney in a sarong, wriggling some native dance (and she's quite good!). I'd never heard of this one before, and you should look for it a a decent adventure tale. Did I get around to mentioning Frances Farmer yet? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyable adventure yarn along a rags-to-riches theme spread between English country estates and the exotic south seas. Boys of the time must have loved it! Tyrone Power is always a likeable hero, and interesting to see the much-troubled Frances Farmer in one of her few roles. A few moments have inevitably dated but there is still much to please! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a good story and those of you that have never seen Frances Farmer, order it from Netlix or see it on TCM. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Gene Tierney is smoking hot in this and that's pretty much the only reason to watch it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member A painfully mediocre and forgettable film. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
