    Interesting film as a throw-back to the eighteenth century idea of the purity of primitive societies and the corruption of established European civilisation. One has the impression, given the production values that the makers thought the film would be more significant than it turned out to be; perhaps the States' becoming involved in WW2 altered perspectives and hence its reception. Given the circumstances of the war then being waged the filmmust ended up seeming to be an escapist dream rather than a comment on earlier 'civilised' society....But perhapsthe freedom of the island was meant to be a metaphor for the freedom of the U.S. contrasted with the decadence of Europe, Nazi Germany specifically.Nice to see the very young Roddy MacDowell acting very young 'manly' and carrying the part successfully, and Frances Farmer who plays vey well as a two-faced woman and who one suspects could have been very effective in a good larger role. And Elsa Lancaster is a very attractive and well-spoken doxy -- but she always does seem to be under-utilised in her screen appearances or maybe one is just left wishing for more of her and that is a good state to leave the audience in -- she is just one of those talents that are treasured for any role they have appeared in. Tyrone Power is as effective actor as he ever was and still at his most young adult handsomeness and Gene Tierney in one of her early roles is up to the slight demands made of her and still in her primary adult beauty. George Sanders manages to make his turn on his customary villain seem fresh.The first time I saw the film (when I appreciated it less for its social commentary and more for its Pacific Islandsparadisical aspect) the island section was in sepia tone which contrasted warmly and emphaticaly with the black and white of the corruption of England. It is a pity that the present version does not have the change.Does that version still exist?

    One dimensional characters, overwrought score, a villain (George Sanders) who would no doubt twirl his moustache if he had one, and yet a wonderfully entertaining example of Hollywood's golden age. Keep an eye out for Elsa Lanchester, who for once is permitted to show her attractive side.

  • darn good movie

    This is an old fashioned movie with an interesting story and a great cast. Power and Tierney never looked better. Enjoy!

  • Wonderful characters!

    I watch this film monthly on the Fox Movie Channel and it's wonderful. The performances by Tyrone Power, George Sanders and Gene Tierney are wonderful. If you haven't taken the time to watch this film please do so. You won't regret it.
