Trivia

The costs of shooting for four days in Havana were shared by MGM with the understanding that the studio could use atmospheric exterior shots in their upcoming production of "Cuban Love Song." The Cuban embassy later protested the Havana locations although the setting was supposedly a mythical island. American and British groups both objected to the heavy drinking and generally the film had its share of censorship problems. See more »

A Great Gritty Tale
23 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Helen Twelvetrees is excellent as a poor waif in a dirty tavern. She is really a prostitute forced by Ricardo Cortez to keep the men entertained. Phillips Holmes (an underrated actor) bolts in and rescues her from her despair. This is no creaky early sound film. The camera work is brilliant and the cast (kudos to Marjorie Rambeau) is first rate. In tragedy, there is always comedy, and the two work together very well. I'd love to see a proper DVD release of this wonderful film. The setting is somewhat reminiscent of 'Anna Christie'. Helen Twelvetrees and Phillips Holmes deserve recognition to early sound films. This is truly classic Pre-Code cinema.
