Marie of the Isles (French: Marie des Isles, Italian: I flibustieri della Martinica) is a 1959 French-Italian historical adventure film directed by Georges Combret and starring Belinda Lee, Alain Saury and Darío Moreno.[1]

It was also known as The Wild and the Wanton.[2]


In 1635, Jacques du Parquet, the nephew of the well known explorer Belain d'Esnambic, enters a tavern in Dieppe, and falls in love with the daughter of the bartender, Marie Bonnard. He knows his noble family would disapprove such a marriage; besides, he is nominated for the post of governor in Martinica. He promised never to forget Marie, but as time goes by, she will accept to marry a rich and unscrupulous man, Monsieur de Saint-André. When her husband is appointed to serve in Martinica as General Commissioner, Marie demands to go with him. At her arrival, all sorts of trouble arrive: pirates take action against travelers and goods, rotten deals set the two officers against each other, and finally jealousy settles to make things worse. Written by Artemis-9 ( from )

Main cast


The film was based on a novel by Robert Gaillard about the real life Jacques Dyel du Parquet which sold over 150,000 copies in France. The novel was published in the US, the first of Gaillard's novels to be so.[3]

Belinda Lee's casting was announced in March 1959.[4] It was one of a series of biographical roles she played in Europe.[5]

Magali Noel fractured her ankle during filming in August.[6]
