Lydia Bailey 1952 Dale Robertson Action Adventure

Stars: Dale Robertson, Anne Francis, Charles Korvin

Young Boston lawyer Albron Hamlin goes to Haiti in 1802 to find Lydia Bailey. He has been sent on a mission to settle her estate.  The war-torn island is  in the strife between the black president and the French who are trying to retake possession of the country.  Hamlin finds Lydia and against the background of war and rebellion, they fall in love while helping the Haitians against the French.

William Marshall plays King Dick, His considerable acting skill and imposing presence dominate the proceedings in a well-written, non-stereotypical role. King Dick saves Hamlin’s life on more than one occasion. It is his stratagem, in which Hamlin impersonates a half-witted servant, that gets them within Leclerc’s stronghold. There, the patriot’s mission is to assassinate a traitor to the Haitian cause.

Lydia Bailey is an historical drama about Haiti’s struggles for independence from Napoleonic France. Toss in a love triangle, passion, emotion, escapes, jungle pursuits, battles and voodoo dancing.

This excellent film is based on the Kenneth Roberts novel about the revolution in Haiti. Robert’s novel is fiction but well researched for local accuracy.  The Marshall’s King Dick character is loosely based on real characters.

Tagline: Lydia Bailey … is storm, tempest and violence
