By the Gods!

Jeff Chandler, Louis Jourdan and Debra Paget in BIRD OF PARADISE

All three actors would have solid careers in the PEPLUM genre. Though not 100% PEPLUM, I consider South Sea adventures to fall under the PEPLUM umbrella. The stories and themes are pretty much identical to many PEPLUM films. I finally saw this film a year ago and I was disappointed by it. Way too serious and unfocused. But great locations and good looking cast help make it watchable.
