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.
