Sinners in Paradise was quite enjoyable. The print was damaged but it did not spoil the movie for me. It is no Gone With The Wind but it is a nice little film to watch during a rainy evening.

This film is a very pleasant surprise. It follows the lives of a group of castaways from a plane crash who encounter a mysterious loner who has retired to a deserted Pacific island. The script and acting are decent. The plot offers a lot in terms of humor, action and even some insights into human nature. It also avoids some of the traps that typically a "B" movies such as this typically fall into. This is not a great film, but it is certainly worth watching given that it is free for Prime members.

I guess I was expecting more, but by this late stage in Whale's career I suppose he directed whatever Universal Studios wanted him to (and that wasn't much). First of all, the print that Alpha used is not the best (this remains unrestored), and the sound especially suffers. I probably missed half the dialog at points. Whatever. I could nevertheless perceive the contrived plot (even beyond the contrived scenario) and half-baked acting. This is a far cry from Showboat or Bride of Frankenstein, both made only a few years before.

It's not a comedy, though parts of it are funny. And it's far more realistic than the TV show.

This film reminded me of why I like old movies. They're better written, and don't rely on special effects, so the story and acting carry the film.

The storyline is much like GI. A plane with 8 characters crashes near an isle. Only this time they find 2 men hiding there already. The only semi famous actor you might recognize played the hero in the original King Kong.

There are several plot twists I won't reveal. It's quite a good adventure story. The only truly bad thing is the Asian character who is an awful ugly stereotype, stupid, crazy, and often abused for laughs.

The actors also mysteriously never need to shave, and the actresses mysteriously keep their perfect hairdos. But compared to coconut radios and visitors from half the world, it is a marvel of realism.
