Mogambo (1953)

This remake of Red Dust was set in Africa and the real story was the on-set relationship between Grace Kelly as the uptight wife of Donald Sinden and Clark Gable, the safari guide who play-acts with glamour girl Ava Gardner (who was having her own off-set issues with husband Frank Sinatra). One of those legendary 50s movies that make for perfect holiday viewing:  beautifully shot, great locations and smouldering passions. Perfect.
