Twilight for the Gods is a 1958 American Eastmancolor adventure film directed by Joseph Pevney and starring Rock Hudson and Cyd Charisse. The story is based on the novel Twilight for the Gods by Ernest K. Gann.


After being court-martialed and discharged from the Navy, Captain Bell (Rock Hudson) turns to drink. Reduced to skippering a rundown brigantine in the South Seas he takes on board a disparate group of passengers and crew; including a prostitute, a show-biz entrepreneur, a missionary, a washed up opera singer, and a couple of refugees. During a storm at sea, the true characters of all on board are revealed.
