Time Out saysPreviously an unrealised Carol Reed project, and subsequently a risibly coy teen-sex tease from Randal Kleiser, H de Vere Stacpoole's novel was first filmed by Launder and Gilliat's Individual Pictures, who utilised Technicolor for the first time and split their schedule between Fiji and Pinewood. Stranks and Jones are the child castaways who mature into Simmons and Houston's supposedly unsocialised adolescent lovers on a Pacific paradise. Audiences flocked, as they have since, at the mere promise.
