When Rita Hayworth collided with Glenn Ford in 1946's Gilda, the result was a film-noir cocktail with potent effects. Having re-teamed in the florid Loves of Carmen, it was natural to get the two together again in more noirish circumstances--which is where Affair in Trinidad comes in. In fact, it was Hayworth's first movie back in Hollywood after taking time off to marry Prince Aly Khan, and audiences might have wondered whether she still had the same oomph. As her nightclub numbers prove, she's got the goods when it comes to sashaying across a dance floor, although in this case her fun song-and-dance numbers are in the service of a plot that simply gets too complicated for its own good. Ford plays the stranger who arrives in Trinidad at the invitation of his brother, who used to be married to Rita and is now dead by suicide. Subterfuge with island bigwigs ensues. Alas, the chemistry between the stars is as gray as the general approach here: Hayworth is dazed and listless, while Ford tries to work up some energy by laboring too hard. It's easy enough to enjoy the attractive stars and the exotic-port-of-call idea of the thing, but the execution isn't up to snuff. In short, it's no Gilda. --Robert Horton

Product Description

A murder investigation sparks a passionate affair between a dancer and her new found love. Affair in Trinidad reunites the screen-scorching team of Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford in this romantic spy drama of international intrigue and sizzling sensuality. Hayworth stars as Chris Emery, a sexy, hip-grinding dancer who works in a Trinidad dive owned by her husband. When he's murdered by an international spy (Alexander Scourny), Chris' life is turned upside down, especially when the police draw herinto the investigation. When Glenn Ford, who plays her brother-in-law Steve, arrives in town the two are drawn deeper into the mystery and ultimately, into each other's arms. Fans of Rita Hayworth's dancing will find Affair in Trinidad a dream come true. Her very first scene includes a wild, uninhibited tropical dance to calypso music. Later in the picture, at a fashionable party, Rita suddenly steams things up with a sultry, sophisticated dance which devotees of hot rhythm will devour. The scenes between Ford and Hayworth are magical. The promise provided by the original movie poster, " She's back! With that man from Gilda!," proved to be all the original film audiences needed to make Affair in Trinidad a hit that even out-grossed Gilda at the box office by a million dollars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent "Who-dun-it"... July 27, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent "Who-dun-it" starring Glenn Ford, Rita Hayworth, and Alexander Scourby. Rita's husband dies of an apparent suicide...BUT...was it really a suicide and not a murder. Glenn Ford is the dead man's brother who comes to Trinidad to investigate and catch the killer. Suspects are the widow herself and a rich man she has a relationship with. Others in the cast add mystery and there are a couple of musical numbers by Hayworth. Sort of Film Noir and a very good mystery. Worth watching.

3.0 out of 5 stars More than I expected April 24, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I have seen Ford and Hayworth in movies (seperately) since World War II. The story is quite good, as are the script and the direction. The suspense and plot twists are interesting, and Rita Hayworth was very good in a fairly difficult role. I expected only a steamy romance vehicle, having seen repeatedly publicity so indicating for Gilda and for this picture. I was very pleased at the picture,including theTrinidadian blacks being so favorably and well protrayed for the time, and such roles being very well acted. And there is some chemistry there ! Maybe 3 1/2 stars out of 5 (I don't give many 5s).

4.0 out of 5 stars Hayworth & Ford re-team in Trinidad July 30, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Affair In Trinidad (1952) was made to re-team Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford who created such a sensation in Gilda in 1946. On it's own, Affair In Trinidad, is a very enjoyable Film Noir mystery thriller with a couple of steamy song and dance routines executed beautifully, as only Rita Hayworth can do. However, in a side by side comparison to Gilda, it is a disappointment, but still worth watching, none-the-less. For those of you who have never seen Gilda, do yourself a favor, and watch it. Gilda is one of the truly great films of the 1940s. You will not be disappointed in this Film Noir mystery thriller, with great performances, some snappy dialog and a few twists and turns that will hold your attention to the very end.

Rita Hayworth's movie comeback after a four-year absence, AFFAIR IN TRINIDAD (1952) saw the red-headed siren treading in territory that she'd previously covered in "Gilda"...an elaborate, nonsensical plot...exotic locations...steamy musical numbers...not to mention the same leading man.

When her husband is murdered, Chris Emery (Rita Hayworth), Trinidad's sultry singing sensation, is asked by the authorities to secretly spy on the chief suspect, influential businessman Max Fabian (Alexander Scourby). Complicating matters is the arrival of Emery's brother Steve (Glenn Ford), who is attracted to his lovely sister-in-law, and yet repulsed by her intimate relationship with the man clearly responsible for Emery's death.

Comparisons between AFFAIR IN TRINIDAD and the earlier "Gilda" aside ("Gilda" is an undisputed film noir classic) ...TRINIDAD carries it's own unique charms. In many ways, I actually prefer this movie to "Gilda"! It is a very solid noir melodrama, with a softer, more introverted Rita Hayworth. Co-starring with Glenn Ford for the fourth time, she's absolutely radiant in this film. Design-wise the film is a real treat, and Hayworth dazzles in Jean Louis fashions. Director Vincent Sherman (a favourite amongst the Joan Crawford and Bette Davis camps) securely handles the story. Valerie Bettis chews the scenery in a fun supporting role, and "Imitation of Life"'s Juanita Moore is Hayworth's mystical housekeeper.

Not a masterpiece by any means. Just a solid, enjoyable film. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Affair in Trinidad April 20, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Affair in Trinidad was part of the film noir movement of the forties & fifties. It's not the greatest example of that genre but it's still very good. It stars the lovely Rita Hayworth & was her first film in four years. It also stars Glenn Ford who, in just a few more years, would become a box office bonanza. It's directed by the capable Vincent Sherman.

The film opens with an investigation into suicide. The husband (who's never seen) of Chris Emery (Hayworth) is found dead in his boat. It's ruled as a suicide but Inspector Smythe (Torrin Thatcher) doesn't really believe it. He's gotten another statement from one of the local fishermen that leads him to believe otherwise. Smythe & Anderson, the American Ambassador, go to the club where Chris works to inform her of her husband's death. Here we are treated with a performance number by Chris that's a burner. It's interesting to note that all the dance routines were choreographed by Valerie Bettis who portrays Veronica in the film.

Steve Emery (Ford) is introduced on an airplane that's flying to Trinidad. He has a letter from his brother, who he doesn't know is dead, inviting him down for a job as a pilot. Steve meets one of the co=conspirators on the plane, Bronec (Walter Kohler), who has an unusual reaction when Steve asks him does he know his brother.

Apparently, there's some international intrigue going on in Trinidad & Max Fabian (Alexander Scourby) is behind it all. He has a past of doing this sort of thing previously. Inspector Smythe believes it's Fabian behind the death of Chris's husband. He enlists her aid to get the necessary evidence so that he can arrest Fabian. A sham coroner's inquest is held where the death is ruled as a suicide.
