Lana Turner is beautiful and Edith Head has swathed her in gorgeous clothing, but that's about all that can be said for this dime novel story of love among the rich and bored in Acapulco. Turner is wed to Robertson, a former beachboy-gigolo who married her for her money and is now thinking

he may have made a mistake. The body of another of her beachboy-lovers washes ashore, and Robertson thinks that the man committed suicide because Turner left him. Now Powers arrives in town. She's the dead man's fiancee and wants to get to the bottom of things. Robertson starts to show some

interest in Powers, and Turner contents herself with yet another man, Bravo, a bullfighter. Meanwhile, O'Brian, yet another beachboy-gigolo, is dancing attendance on Roman, another wealthy American, but his real goal is Turner. He is just waiting until Robertson and Turner founder on the shoals of

matrimony, so he can move in on her. Robertson continues falling for Powers as Acapulco police officer Lucero investigates the suicide. At a bull training ring run by Montalban, Turner hears Powers demand that Robertson leave Turner and responds by jumping her horse over the barrier to be gored by

a bull in the ring. Robertson leaps to the rescue, avoiding the bull's next charge, and rushes Turner away for medical help. This selfless act brings the pair back together, and Powers, realizing that there's no room for a third party in this relationship, departs for Michigan from whence she

came. Thank heaven it only lasts 104 minutes. Robertson's wooden acting is animated compared to that of O'Brian. Nancy Wilson's rendition of the title song is better than the tune deserves. The movie was filmed on location in Mexico City and Acapulco.
