      Julie S Absolutely funny movie. I love ava gardner, she has never made a bad movie. David niven is excellent at being ineptly helpless and Stewart Granger is the flawless Gentleman and captain always in charge. It leaves you wondering which man she will choose right to the end. And Nelson is a faithful guardsman to his lovely mistress. I could watch it over and over and never tire of it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Not very successful as a comedy, but definitely worth watching to marvel at how such a morally wrong and racy movie was ever approved by the Hays Code. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member The script is a contrived bit of silliness but Ava is gorgeous and game. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member gr8 cast makes this one go Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Silly contrived story but Ava Gardner has the most exquisite wardrobe in this which accentuates her beauty.Even after the threesome get shipwrecked,she's the most stylish Islander I've ever seen.Poor Ava,in a Love Triangle with two handsome men in Tuxedos.
