GREEN DOLPHIN STREET (1947)   141 min.

Two beautiful daughters of a wealthy merchant fall in love with the same handsome man (Richard Hart), but because he favors Marguerite (Donna Reed), her "not quite nice" sister Marianne (Lana Turner) persuades him to seek his fortune abroad. Settled in business in New Zealand with a friend (Van Heflin), he sends for Marguerite to join him: however, he drunkenly addresses his proposal to irresistible Marianne. When she meets them both, a bitter rivalry begins.
