He is tormented by the jealousy of his wife Sylvia ( Patricia Owens), and is envious of his younger sister Jocelyn ( Joan Collins), who is being courted by the handsome, young, Oxford-bound Euan Templeton ( Stephen Boyd), newly arrived on Santa Marta to visit his father, Lord Templeton ( Ronald Squire), the island's governor.

The selections range from his first commercially successful single – Scarlet Ribbons (1952) – through a decade of the cream of each of his unique albums, demonstrating the diversity of world music as superbly reinvented by his interpretive brilliance. a b ZANUCK FILM PLANS: Fox to Release 'Island in Sun, His First as Independent New York Times 21 Feb 1957: 30.
