Beachcomber, The (1954)
Charles Laughton plays Edward C. Wilson Esq, who despite his title, is the town character. His drunken debauchery puts him at odds with Mr. Gray, the resident in charge of the welcome islands. It also puts him at odds with the other Europeans, especially Martha Jordan, the local missionary. Martha and “Mr. Ted” become an unlikely pair as they face a typhoid epidemic that has taken over the islands.
