Overview

The four-hour TV movie Passion and Paradise traces the rise and fall of real-life British playboy Alfred de Marigny Armand Assante. Little better than a gigolo, de Marigny finds himself in the Bahamas during World War II, where he romances the daughter Catherine Mary Stewart of fabulously wealthy Sir Harry Oakes Rod Steiger. None of the "right people" can stomach de Marigny, but they're stuck with him once he marries Oakes' daughter. During the next few years, de Marigny manages to antagonize the Duke of Windsor Andrew Ray, who is governor of the Bahamas; he also alienates local businessmen and infuriates a group of mobsters who want to set up a gambling casino in Nassau. As Part One of Passion and Paradise draws to a close, Sir Harry Oakes is murdered--and Alfred de Marigny is the most convenient though not most likely suspect. Part Two opens with the murder of Oakes in 1943. The higher-ups of the Bahama Islands sincerely hope that de Marigny is the killer, if only to get rid of the dreadful man. So anxious are certain parties to hang de Marigny that an official conspiracy to cover up vital evidence takes shape. De Marigny's only hope for salvation is an American private eye Wayne Rogers. Filmed in Jamaica, Passion and Paradise painted so damning a portrait of Bahaman high society that several scenes including most of those featuring the Duke of Windsor had to be rewritten and reshot before the film's British television release.
