A semi-documentary centering on a primitive island culture in the Philippines, this movie was filmed on remote and fascinating locations in 1934, but not released until 1937. Despite the efforts of off-camera narrator James J. Gilbert to stir up some drama surrounding a pair of young lovers (played by Adelina Moreno and Eduardo De Castro) who hold different religions beliefs, we know it's all going to turn out for the best – and sure enough it eventually does. In fact, the movie out-stays its welcome. And alas, the dull black-and-white photography (no doubt blown up from 16mm) lacks contrast and is nowhere near a tenth as entrancing as the highly colorful reproductions on the DVD jacket. Available on an otherwise reasonably good Alpha disc.
