His job requires him to spy on the Japanese military by monitoring radio activity in the South Pacific for the Australian navy. In exchange, Walter is compensated with alcohol for his work. Usually Walter works alone, until the arrival of the lovely Catherine (Leslie Caron), a French schoolteacher, and her seven female students. The girls survive a plane crash nearby, and are left to live with Walter. In the beginning, Walter and Catherine argue and feud, but they start to grow closer, as the only adults on the island, they begin to have fun together. One day a snake bites Catherine leaving Walter to care for her, bringing out the true affection and love that he has for her. Directed by Ralph Nelson, this Oscar award-winning film for Best Original Screenplay truly inspires leaving the audience satisfied.
