Description by OLDIES.com:
It's 1939, and World War II begins its carnage. But deep in the Belgian Congo, nurse Rachel Cade goes about the daily, desperate business of saving lives, barely touched by the world outside. Then an RAF pilot crash lands near the hospital, bringing with him the urgency of war... and a love that will change Rachel's life forever. Three exciting stars - Angie Dickinson (Point Blank), Peter Finch (Network) and seven-time James Bond Roger Moore - headline an exotic drama scripted by Edward Anhalt (Becket). Of equal note is the extraordinary supporting cast, including Woody Strode, Juano Hernandez, Rafer Johnson and Scatman Crothers. Powerful performances and powerful storytelling infuse this film with a timeless relevance.
Rachel Cade (Angie Dickinson), a dedicated American nurse working in the Belgian Congo, meets administrator Henri Derode (Peter Finch) during a native fertility dance. Guess what he tries to do' He doesn't, though, because Rachel falls in love with handsome downed RAF pilot Paul Wilton (Roger Moore). As Paul's wounds heal in the jungle hospital, he and Rachel manage to find quality time together. After he leaves, a pregnant Rachel turns to the previously rejected Henri for aid and comfort. After an hour or so of further melodramatic complications (including a native uprising), Rachel realizes that it was Henri she loved all along. A standard-issue soap opera from the Warner Bros. factory, THE SINS OF RACHEL CADE was unobtrusively directed by the ubiquitous Gordon M. Douglas. Edward Anhalt adapted the screenplay from a novel by Charles E. Mercer.
