Military conflict, love and racism are dealt with in exuberantly toe-tapping style in this visually lush screen version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein 1949 musical. Set during the Second World War, it sees romance flourishing on a US forces base in the South Pacific. Not only has young Navy nurse Nellie fallen for middle-aged French plantation owner Emile, but a new officer, Lieutenant Joseph Cable, has also gone gaga for island girl, Liat. Trouble is both the Americans have misguided racial beliefs, making Nellie develop cold feet when she discovers Emile has half-Polynesian children and Joseph get equally anxious worrying about what folks back home will think of his native sweetheart. Will prejudice or love win the day?
Against the backdrop of a Nazi-occupied North Africa an American expatriate meets a former lover, with unforeseen complications.
