"Green Fire" (1953)

One of those slick technicolor adventure romances where a bunch of white leading characters entangle with love and intrigue in an exotic locale amongst ‘lesser’ people of color reduced to mere background props. Stewart Granger is a looking for elusive emeralds in the mountains of Colombia. There he meets and woos the beautiful owner of a coffee plantation (Grace Kelly) whose land may or may not contain those green rocks. Granger’s effortless swagger salvages the picture. He’s a got a sense of humor in his delivery, the lovable cad syndrome that always works. Kelly is a little stiff but it suits her character. And boy, does the look great in a bevy of Helen Rose peasant skirts.
