Director John Cromwell was deft at putting this kind of thing over (he'd made the splendid Prisoner of Zenda five years earlier) and the violence, especially coming from Sanders' blackguard, is unusually tough. The tasty supporting cast includes Elsa Lanchester, Dudley Digges, and young Roddy McDowall, who plays Ben as a boy. Alfred Newman has fun with the score, which includes a well-nigh irresistible Polynesian-flavored love theme. Power is his usual straightforward self, still at his physical prime; he and Tierney are about as pretty a couple as you could imagine stranded on a lost island--the island of escapism. --Robert Horton

It was very slow. I found it dull. I really like Tyrone in the Sea Hawk, Alexander's Rag time band and Zorro. I was disapointed.Published 6 months ago by Charlyne Metcalf
