Flame of the Islands is a 1956 Trucolor drama film directed by Edward Ludwig starring Yvonne De Carlo, Howard Duff and Zachary Scott.[1]


Rosalind Dee (DeCarlo) is a cafe singer striving to enter high society. Rosalind stumbles upon a large amount of money by lucky means. Rosalind forms a partnership with gambling-club owners Wade Evans (Zachary Scott) and Cyril Mace (Kurt Kasznar), building the establishment into a gathering place for the elite. Along the way, she attempts to rekindle a romance with randy playboy Doug Duryea (Howard Duff), but she is soon lured in by Rev. Kelly Rand (James Arness) who comes to save Rosalind from her troubles.



The film was shot on location in the Bahamas in Trucolor.

It was originally known as Rebel Island and was to star John Lund.[2]
