Lydia Bailey, Kenneth Roberts’ bestselling novel, is a lush tale of period adventure, action and romance.

With Napoleon attempting to wrest Haiti back from its native government in 1802, the West Indian island is an armed camp swarming with plotters and counter-plotters. Into this atmosphere comes Dale Robertson, a young American attorney whose mission is to secure the signature of Lydia Bailey (Anne Francis) to settle an estate.

It’s a tough task to find Francis, who is the fiancee of a wealthy plantation owner (Charles Korvin). But with the help of William Marshall, a burly leader of the Negro Republicans, Robertson survives the trek through the hostile jungle.

Robertson cuts a dashing figure as the intrepid attorney and neatly meets the demands of the role.
