Rita Hayworth had been absent from the screen for a few years when she made this film, but as the camera proves, although a bit older, she hadn't lost her on-screen magic.
This film isn't technically a "sequel" to the noir classic "Gilda", but it has many of the same elements. Rita (still with her famous Gilda hairstyle) again stars opposite Glenn Ford, who slaps Rita across the face just as he did in "Gilda"; Rita sings and dances (ala Gilda) in a couple of musical numbers wherein the voice is dubbed by the same singer who sang for her in "Gilda"...
The plot is contrived, and nowhere near as interesting as "Gilda", but it still makes for an interesting film, especially if you enjoyed "Gilda" and want to see more of the sultry Rita Hayworth making onscreen magic with her most effective co-star, Glenn Ford.
For fans of Hayworth, it's worth seeing for the musical numbers alone.
Lovely Rita... this film bears watching just to see her beautiful face light up the screen!
this technology there is no point in the USA that they couldn't threaten from Cuba. Rather prophetic re eight years later or so... Rita is a singer in a bar
and while the singing is apparently dubbed , the way she moves is somewhat hypnotic in both songs. Her husband dies mysteriously and his brother , Glenn Ford, shows up on
the Caribbean Island just in time for the inquest , as he had recently received a letter. Spies are underfoot, the local cops are undercover on the matter , as
they have their orders , and Ritas' actions leave Glenn confused. Eventually things work out , bad guys caught , and Rita and Glenn end up together. Sounds
pretty simple , and that's what you get from 1952. Still , it is worth a look see just for Rita ; she's the main attraction.
