Product Description

Bahama Passage (1941)

Director:

 Edward H. Griffith

Writers:

 Nelson Hayes (novel), Virginia Van Upp (screenplay)

Stars:

 Madeleine Carroll, Sterling Hayden, Flora Robson
 
Bahama Passage is a leisurely bit of Technicolor exotica starring Madeleine Carroll and her future husband Sterling Hayden. Based on Nolson Hayes' novel {-Dildo Cay}, the story takes place on a remote Bahaman island where the principal commodity-in fact, the only--is salt. The owner of the island is young Adrian (Sterling Hayden), who inherited Dildo Cay from his family. The stultifying dullness of life on the island has caused all the wives of Adrian's forebears to eventually descend into insanity, and it looks as though the same thing might happen to Adrian's sweetheart Carol (Madeleine Carroll), despite her uncanny ability to look after herself. While Carol does not go crazy, her presence on the island proves to be something of a jinx, resulting in dissension amongst the native population. The most striking aspect of Bahama Passage is the extremely casual clothing worn by the stars: Why, one would think that Paramount was trying to get the audience's mind off the film's slower passages by showing off as much cheesecake and beefcake as possible.

  1. Madeleine Carroll in Technicolor 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 13th 2018

    Another Madeleine Carroll film with Screenwriter Virginia Van Upp, Director Edward M. Griffith and Dress designer Edith Head yet it didn't fit the usual mold. Tanned and showing more of her figure in technicolor, Madeleine Carroll not only looked different, she was like another person, but isn't that what acting is all about? This Carroll role was something like the father-daughter film The General Died at Dawn (1936), which took place in China while This setting was in the Caribbean. Her acting as a girl who has been around in both parts was excellent, although there is no comparison between Gary Cooper of the General movie and Stirling Hayden in Bahama Passage. Hayden is indeed a hulk and has a nice voice, but could use more acting lessons. Nevertheless, Carroll and Hayden are two sun glazed beautiful figures surrounded with spectacular scenery which indeed makes it worth watching despite the movie's rather soap opera cadence. While Bahama Passage was a bit weird, I will always give Madeleine Carroll 5 stars for her performance. It is well worth watching just to see her in technicolor.
