Overview

Burt Lancaster and Virginia Mayo, the stars of 1950's Flame and the Arrow, are reteamed in the lusty adventure romp South Sea Woman. It all begins at the military trial of Marine sergeant O'Hearn Burt Lancaster, facing a court-martial for desertion. In flashback, O'Hearn recalls how he was stranded in Shanghai while trying to break up the impending marriage between his pal David White Chuck Connors and brassy nightclub photographer Ginger Martin Virginia Mayo. The two marines try to make it back to Pearl Harbor, but they undergo several hair-raising adventures along the way, including a sticky involvement with a group of French resistance fighters. The upshot of all this is that O'Hearn arrives in Pearl after the Japanese attack, and as such is branded as a coward. It is up to Ginger Martin to provide the evidence that will clear our hero -- but she isn't too fond of O'Hearn at the moment.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
South Sea Woman is a bunch of nonsense, and if you are in the mood for nothing more than a lot of pointless comedic hijinx and some feudin' and fightin', then Woman can be pretty enjoyable. But if you are not in this mood, Woman is pretty much a waste of time. It's not the kind of film that a person gets all worked up about one way or the other; if you like it, it's a pleasant little way to pass some time and get some easy laughs. If you don't, it's not something that is likely to stick in your craw and make you angry. Is it a good film? No, not really. It could have been; with a wittier script, or a daffier director, or a more imaginative way of approaching the basic premise, it could have become something a bit more special. (To be fair, it could also have become a disaster.) The cast is perfectly fine and gives it all a good try. Burt Lancaster is, of course, totally believable as a buff marine, and he handles both the physical and the comedic demands of the role well. Virginia Mayo really lets go and throws herself into the proceedings, and Chuck Connors is fine as her intended husband.
