Smuggler's Island is a 1951 American Technicolor film noir adventure film directed by Edward Ludwig starring Jeff Chandler and Evelyn Keyes
Chandler called the film one of his favourites because "I played myself". Around this time Chandler typically played characters of varying nationalities from different historical periods; this was a rare opportunity for him to play a contemporary American.
"This is the most conscious effort made so far to sell the Chandler personality per se," he said. "Just plain Jeff Chandler - a nondescript American down on his luck.
Filming started in June 1950.
