Flame of the Islands is a 1956 drama that explores the timeless themes of obsession, vengeance and intrigue against a lush tropical backdrop. Rosalind Dee (Yvonne de Carlo) is a beautiful and sultry nightclub singer. Not satisfied with her lot in life, Rosalind aspires to break into the highest ranks of society. With a sudden stroke of fortune, Rosalind receives a huge sum of money from a powerful widow, Mrs. Hammond (Frieda Inescort), who wants to cover up Rosalind's past affair with Mr. Hammond. Rosalind uses the hush money to her advantage, buying shares in a Bahamas night club. At the club, Rosalind encounters many figures from her troubled past, including the man she loved as a girl and his disapproving mother. As Rosalind works through her feelings for Doug Duryea (Howard Duff), Mrs. Duryea (Barbara O'Neil) becomes unknowingly involved in Rosalind's own plot for vengeance. A reverend (James Arness) also becomes drawn to the seductive Rosalind, complicating the situation. The dramatic and intriguing story plays out to a fascinating end against the vivid natural beauty of the Bahamas.moreless
