Description:
"Return to Paradise" (1953)  In a beautiful lush Tahiti type setting, Morgan (Gary Cooper) washes upon this Pacific Island.  He is a drifter and soldier of fortune, whofinds himself at odds with the dictatorship of Pastor Corbett, a missionary with puritanical rules.  The cleric endeavors to subdue the native culture of the natives, whereas Morgan comes to defend them.  The song “Return to Paradise” is now considered a classic, and we hear it in the background of this film's vibrant setting that will warm our winter soul.
