At c.5 minutes Kennedy is seen falling, exhausted, to the ground onto (or at least very near) a large log lying on the ground. However, in the shot immediately afterwards, when he is lying inert after his fall, there is no log to be found anywhere near him. See more »
The film begins on a small Polynesian island where Movita lives along with her people. A White guy (Warren Hull) washes up on the beach and she nurses him back to health. Once he regained his strength, she finds out he was on a ship that wrecked that was taking him to see a doctor about an operation to restore his sight, though Movita is thrilled to keep him whether he's blind or not. Unfortunately, a young islander loves her and wants her new boyfriend to go, so he makes a dangerous voyage in a small boat to other islands to try and find this doctor. In the meantime, the only other White man on the island is a dirt-bag that decides to pretend to have the doctor to cheat Movita out of her most desirable treasure--a huge black pearl. After cheating her and giving Hull false hope, all is not lost as the real doctor shows and operates. But will Hull stay behind or abandon his loyal Movita? Watch this film and see for yourself.
This is a very capably done movie by poverty row studio, Monogram. Considering how cheap the productions generally were, this is a very good Monogram film. However, being not especially interesting or compelling, it's nothing more than a time-passer that has lapsed into the public domain.
