Lawrence Shannon has been living in Mexico for two years, working as a tourist guide for a cut-rate travel agency. Shannon lost his church and was defrocked after taking liberties with one of his parishioners. He’s now accompanying a group of middle-aged ladies from Texas whose leader, Judith Fellowes, is keeping a close eye on her teenage ward, Charlotte Goodall, who definitely has an interest in the former priest. After Charlotte and Shannon spend the night together, Fellowes is out to have him fired and to keep her from communicating with his employer, Shannon strands them at a remote hotel run by his good friend Maxine Faulk. It’s the arrival of Hannah Jelkes and her elderly grandfather that has the greatest impact however. Her approach to life and love forces Shannon to deal with his demons and re-evaluate his life.
Plot: A defrocked Episcopal clergyman leads a bus-load of middle-aged Baptist women on a tour of the Mexican coast and comes to terms with the failure haunting his life.

Watched this film recently for the seventh or eighth time -it’ always a delight. Classic Burton hamming it up just enough. . . calm, cool Kerr proping up “Shannon’s” sanity. . . free-spirited Gardner charging around trying to keep her sanity and reaching out for Shannon. . .Lyon, the “precocious” seductress. . . all were amazingly believable. I didn’t have a problem with the black and white, in fact, I think it added to impact of the film, leaving it up to the actors to pull out the heart of William’s magnificent play without the benefit of color, although I’m not sure color would have made any difference anyway. The final dialogue between Kerr and Burton was spellbinding: the meeting of two souls, if only for the moment.
Kerr, Burton, and Gardner were at their finest in this film.
I found Hannah’s soliloquy about her personal battle with Blue Devils the most poignant writing I have ever heard. It is amazingly beautiful.
She talks, a full shot of her face, her back to Burton, about the ways we manage to battle them, all unique, some grand, some destructive. She is so kind.
The conversations she has with Ava Gardner’s character are taut and honest, there can be no competition between them, Hannah will not play the game and responds with love.
Sounds so corny when it is written out, so different from what we see in many of today’s movies.
I have to find the script and read her soliloquy.
