Love Island
Long before trading her Park Avenue apartment for a ramshackle farm on Green Acres, Eva Gabor shed her Saks' Fifth Avenue duds for a South Seas sarong in Love Island. Gabor plays Sarna, a Balinese beauty, courted by stranded Navy pilot Lt. Richard Tabor (Paul Valentine). Bad guy Jaraka (Malcolm Beggs) doesn't like this arrangement, so he has Sarna's father arrested on a trumped-up charge. Jaraka then drops a few subtle suggestions that the old man will never survive his incarceration unless Sarna marries him. If nothing else, Love Island offers acres and acres of exposed male and female epidermis, lovingly photographed in Cinecolor. The film was directed by exploitation king Budd Pollard, who a few years earlier had specialized in films aimed at the African American market. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
