Larry Karaszewski on

Paradise Lagoon

Released 1957
Distributor Columbia Pictures

One of the most charming movies ever made, Lewis Gilbert’s bittersweet comedy is escapist entertainment at its best. Kenneth More plays the by-the-book butler to a household of insufferable snobs—the tables are turned, and how, when the whole crew is shipwrecked on a paradisiacal island. Sally Ann Howes is the prim aristocrat  turned swinging Jane to More’s Tarzan.
