Two sailors (Robert Mitchum and Jack Lemmon) who run a small cargo boat in the Caribbean agree to take a beautiful woman (Rita Hayworth) with no papers to another island, but as both of them fall in love with her, they fall out over her. This film has three major stars from this period, but the problem with the film is the episodic script. There are parta of action, drama, romance and Rita hayworth being being sultry and dancing, but the whole ends up being somewhat disjointed and slow in parts. Rita Hayworth was past her peak by this film but she and the other two leads do the best with the script and production they worked with.
