Trivia

The opening scene is missing in the TCM print, according to synopses reported in contemporary reviews. In that scene, the Douglas Fairbanks Jr. character is a bookworm who goes to Central America when advised to do so by a fortune-teller. The missing scene may account for the TCM print being shorter than the reported running time. See more »

Enjoyable fluff
25 October 2003 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Doug Fairbanks Jr. stars as an ugly American-style tourist stranded in a corrupt Central American Ruritania, only to fall in love with the daughter (Loretta Young) of the country's finance minister (Henry Kolker) days before her wedding to the local millionaire (Edward Breon). This First National production was obviously done on the cheap, as there are numerous technical flaws and even a few flubbed lines by Fairbanks. The film was attractively shot by Ernest Haller, however, and there are some impressive sets probably left over from a big budget feature. Sixth billed Boris Karloff has about two dozen words as Luigi, the butler, character actor Luis Alberni shows up as a local restarauteur, and Claud Allister plays a gay British diplomat ("everyone KNOWS I'm a bachelor!"). It's a cheap and cheerful early talkie, so suspend your disbelief and enjoy the ride.
