    Me and my father were discussing a film we watched a few months back. The plot involved a man (captain or sailor) on a boat. He has a first mate who we both think was black. A woman comes aboard and pays to go somewhere. They hate each other and dont get on. He stops off at this island and people are dancing and he wont dance. He sits having a drink while she dances and he comes up to her. We cant agree on if it was colour or black and white. Its not african queen. Ive looked everywhere for help lol.

    Possibly Fire Down Below (1957), which starred Robert Mitchum and Rita Hayworth.



    There is a good synopsis here:



    Fire Down Below (1957)



    The boat engineer was played by the Trinidadian actor Edric Connor.

    I was thinking "Breaking Point" with John Garfield and Patricia Neal, the criminally underrated 1950 version of To Have and To Have Not.
