A sensuous, steamy story of nurse Darnell and Marine Hunter marooned on an island together for a year after their ship is torpedoed during WW II. The two begin as friendly enemies, bickering with each other, but they eventually fall in love. An RAF pilot, Gray, crashlands on the island and

is seriously injured. Darnell is now able to practice her medical knowledge and amputates Gray's arm to save his life. A menage a trois then develops with Darnell loving both men but unable to make up her mind which one to choose. She decides on Gray after they are rescued. Most of the film is

puerile and flabby in story and dialog, but Darnell, wandering about in scanty rags, presents a sultry image, and the color photography is lush. Hunter offers little talent, but Gray provides some interest. Filmed on location in Jamaica.
