Isle of Love was based on Bicchi, a novel by Saint Sorny. Claude France stars as a unfortunate young Corsican who is accused of murder. Rather than provide an alibi that would compromise the reputation of his sweetheart, France escapes the long arm of the law. Alas, his sweetheart inadvertently reveals his hiding place, whereupon France is wounded by the murder victim's father. The girl nurses the hero back to health, and together they leave Corsica for the mountain ranges of Europe. Years later, France returns to his home to pay the penalty for his escape, but by now his name has been cleared. Isle of Love represents the final screen work of actor Claude France, who died suddenly and tragically a scant few weeks before the film's release.
