As rumor has it an interracial screen kiss caused quite a commotion in the U.S. when the film was released. The plot is further strengthened by a look at the lives of a white ex-pat family also living on the island. The family has to deal with problems of infidelity, racism and murder.

    Fiction meets Real Life

    Harry Belafonte and Joan Collins had an affair during this filming, on location, btw. She was very serious about continuing the relationship publicly. Belafonte didn’t want their relationship to cause him flak in the Civil Rights movement and cut her off. She said he broke her heart with this.
