A pretty good hour long sleazy pre-code
2 March 2011 | by (Poughkeepsie, NY) – See all my reviews

The film starts out with Victor McLaglen's character escaping from Devil's Island, in order to reach his dying wife, and before his daughter(Helen Mack) is turned out on the streets. When he reaches Paris his wife has already died, and daughter has just been kicked out of where they were living.Now his goal is to stop her from being taken advantage of by a group of thugs who want to pimp her out under the guise of "modeling in South America". Jack La Rue plays one of the main thugs, who I have a feeling wants to do more than pimp her out. There is some great pre-code moments, such as the scene where the police snitch gets thrown in an oven by the thugs, and the undressing scene where you and Jack La Rue get to see a whole lot of Helen Mack.
