Quotes

Therese Du Flos Verlaine: [as Therese prepares to leave for French Indochina, she says goodbye to her father, the Colonel] Aren't you going to let me forget just for five minutes that I'm a soldier's daughter?
Col. Du Flos: From now on, you'll have to remember it more than ever. You're going out to marry André, but that is not enough. You'll live in a place where it is impossible to live; you'll make your home where no home can be. Have you sufficient strength for that?

What a drag it is being imperialist
12 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes the movie is full of racists, has racist language but I wouldn't call the movie itself racist - the whites are shown no mercy. This movie is worth seeing for its realism, and the way it ends. No spoilers here, but I found the ending eminently satisfying, unlike other reviewers. And Ann Hardy is such a gem - so much better than the stars who held the screen for longer than she (Crawford, Davis etc). Adolph Menjou is a perfect snake. Melvin Douglas captures arrogance - and its consequences perfectly - and the "natives" are brilliant in their forceful presence.

Another pre-code movie that is startling contemporary (except for the "racist premise") in its depiction of how the relationship between a man and a woman can be impacted by events beyond their control, especially if they ignore their environment.
