"When Steve Emery (Glenn Ford) visit the steamy tropics of Trinidad, he gets more than he bargained for. Someone's murdered his brother, and his bombshell sister-for-law Chris (Rita Hayworth) might be the only one who can solve the mystery. Despite conflicting feelings of lust and loyalty, Chris and Steve must work together to track down the killer before the culprit catches them"--Container.

Rita Hayworth returns to Hollywood after about four years married to a prince. This is trying to return to the glory of Gilda reuniting with Glenn Ford and recycling the plot of Notorious. She is a bit older and not quite the same powerful bombshell in her heyday. Everything feels like a mere shadow of former glory. With a lot more imagination, that could have been used to the movie's advantage. This one is pass its prime before it started. This may not be a classic but it is reminiscent of past greatness.

Produced by Rita Hayworth's Beckworth Corporation in 1952, this crime story delves into a mysterious death of the husband of a nightclub singer played by Rita Hayworth.
Sexy and beautiful Rita Hayworth shows a fiery calypso dance, but her singing voice is dubbed by Jo Ann Greer.
Although the Cuban Missile Crisis occurred in 1962, this affair in Trinidad seems to foretell the crisis ten years earlier.
Quite interesting!

And, the question is - Who killed "nice guy" Neal Emery, and why?... Well - As the story goes in "Affair In Trinidad" - The answer to Neal's untimely murder is a seriously complicated matter (as you'll soon find out).

IMO - This 1952 "Rita Hayworth" come-back film was certainly better than I had thought it would be. But, it was certainly not "Film Noir" as it has been erroneously categorized.

Back in 1952 the movie-going public literally flocked in droves to see this b&w crime/drama (which was shot entirely on sets in the USA at Columbia Studios).

You see - Glamour girl, Rita Hayworth had been away from starring in pictures for 4 years. During that time of absence she had been married to Prince Aly Khan.

To say that their royal, fairy-tale marriage was a messy affair would truly be an understatement - As it ended in accusations (by Hayworth) of cruelty and abuse. (Oh-me! Oh-my!)

"Affair In Trinidad" was produced on a $1 million budget. It made back 7 times that amount in its first year of release... (*Watch scorching movie-trailer where Hayworth dances and lip-syncs*)
