Affair in Trinidad

USA 1952. Dir: Vincent Sherman. 98 min. 35mm

35mm PRINT! | “She’s back! With that man from Gilda!” After a four-year hiatus from Hollywood (during which she was married to Prince Aly Khan), love goddess Rita Hayworth returned to the screen and re-teamed with Gilda co-star Glenn Ford in this Notorious-like noir drama set in the tropics. Hayworth is steamy nightclub singer Chris Emery, whose husband is found dead in mysterious circumstances. Ford is Chris’s brother-in-law Steve Emery, appalled that Chris is carousing with dubious characters rather than comporting herself like a grieving widow. He sets out to investigate his brother’s death. Hayworth’s two torrid, roof-raising dance numbers recall her celebrated “Put the Blame on Mame” semi-striptease in Gilda. The film was a blockbuster hit for Columbia Pictures, out-grossing Gilda. Hot stuff!
