In the islands of the South Pacific, with war raging around them, they meet - the arrogant Marine colonel who had stripped himself of humanity...the highborn beauty of the horses-and-hunting set whose emotional demands had destroyed the only man she'd loved. Call it chemistry if you will...suddenly for these two there is no past, no future. And afterwards...betrayed by a man and her own emotions, Lee learns to forgive. And Colin Black learns to beg forgiveness. Their love story is the most intimate the screen has yet brought you. The team that created "Country Girl" and "The Bridges at Toko-Ri" has surpassed itself, has produced a masterpiece that delves deep into the human heart. See more »

Several scenes from "The Proud and the Profane" were shot at my parents' home in St Thomas, USVI, at Estate Frenchman's Bay on the island's southern side. The company bought (and left) an additional refrigerator to make & keep ice for the stars' drinks (it gets hot under the lights in the Caribbean!). I also remember seeing a few huge electric bulbs that apparently were blown out or not worth the expense of shipping back to Hollywood. Since I was in elementary school in the States at the time of shooting, I didn't get to watch any of the production, but heard all the stories when I returned for the summer. "The Frogmen", with Richard Widmark, was also shot on the property (in the bay in front of the house).
