The Girls of Pleasure Island is a 1953 comedy directed by Alvin Ganzer and F. Hugh Herbert that is adapted from a 1949 novel by William Maier entitled Pleasure Island. In 1945, Roger Halyard (Leo Genn) is a stern British official who lives on an isolated island in the South Pacific with his longtime housekeeper Thelma (Elsa Lanchester) and his three young, attractive daughters -- Violet (Joan Elan), Hester (Audrey Dalton), and Gloria (Dorothy Bromily). The three girls have never seen another man besides their father, so they are excited when they learn that a troop of 1,500 United States Marines are headed towards their island to build an aircraft landing base. Roger is definitely not as happy, because he knows that the Marines have probably not seen a woman in a long time. In this delightful comedy, Roger, Thelma, and Marine Colonel Reade (Philip Ober) try to stop the boys and girls from associating with each other, but young love begins to bloom on the island despite their efforts.moreless
