Samantha Eggar in The Light at the Edge of the World

In 1971, Samantha Eggar co-starred alongside Kirk Douglas and Yul Brynner in The Light at the Edge of the World. The movie was based on a Jules Verne story and was filmed in Spain. The following year Samantha Eggar and Yul Brynner would re-team for the ill-fated Anna and the King television series, but it was here that they would first show off their excellent chemistry.

The Light at the Edge of the World was not an overwhelming success at the box office at the time of it's release in 1971. However, the film has had a steady audience over the years, thanks to VHS and DVD releases, and some (like me) consider it to be a classic of the pirate movie genre. It's not a traditional high seas, swashbuckling pirate movie, as the movie takes places entirely on and around a small island that is home to a lighthouse. Yul Brynner perfectly portrays the evil pirate Jonathan Kongre leading a sadistic band of pirates. Samantha Eggar is also wonderful and beautiful as ever as Arabella, a woman who has survived the pirate's destruction of the ship she was sailing on.
