Quick Overview

Starring Rock Hudson, Cyd Charisse, Arthur Kennedy, Leif Erickson, Charles McGraw,

Ernest Truex, Richard Haydn

Directed by Joseph Pevney



Print: color

Runtime: 120 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



Adapted by Ernest Gann from his own novel, Twilight for the Gods bears traces of Gann's

earlier The High and the Mighty. This "psychological adventure" stars Rock Hudson as

Captain Bell, who crawls into a bottle after being court-martialed and discharged from the

Navy. Reduced to skippering a rundown schooner in the South Seas, Bell comes into

contact with a group of passengers and crew members who are almost as mixed up as he

is: Charlotte (Cyd Charisse), a Honolulu prostitute on the lam from the authorities; Hutton

(Leif Erickson), a third-rate show biz entrepreneur, Wiggins (Richard Haydn), an erudite

beachcomber; Feodor and Ida Morris (Vladimir Sokoloff, Celia Lovsky) a refugee couple;

ineffectual missionary Butterfield (Ernest Truex); washed-up opera star Ethel Peacock

(Judith Evelyn); and second mate Ramsay (Arthur Kennedy), an all-around rotter. In other

words, it's "Grand Hotel" at sea. During a treacherous, life-threatening storm at sea, the

true characters of the passengers and crewmen are revealed — for better or worse.
