Island in the Sun

Set on the fictitious island of Santa Marta, tensions flare as a bourgeoning, charismatic labor leader (Harry Belafonte) threatens the ruling class, his white rival, and the interracial “harmony” on this island in the sun as scandals— political and marital— take flight. With Belafonte’s trusted screen partner Dorothy Dandridge playing his sister, the film is an interesting look at coded interracial relations.
