By the Gods!

Michele Mercier and Guy Madison in WOMEN OF DEVIL'S ISLAND

A film about women prisoners on some remote island. It's actually better than it sounds. This film has the same production and pretty much the same crew as AVENGER OF THE SEVEN SEAS. Watching both films back to back will produce a very strong sense of deja vu.

Michele looks better as a blonde. In studio shot scenes, she looks a bit too severe with dark hair while in exterior shots she's warmer and a bit more vulnerable. As for Guy, imo, I believe he was incredibly underrated. His good looks probably got in the way of great roles in Hollywood but I've never been disappointed by any of his European made films. He's always very solid.

I agree Guy Madison did not get the degree of appreciation he deserved. I especially liked his performance in "Executioner of Venice."
