As Leslie Calvin enters the front porch area, Cleeve empties his pipe and places it in the breast pocket of his jacket with the bowl of the pipe protruding above the pocket line. Later on the tour of the plantation as Mr. Sydney passes by Cleeve the pipe is gone but in the next shot just seconds after Mr. Sydney has walked a few steps away, the pipe is again clearly visible.

What in your mind is worth the death of five people
***SPOILERS*** Escaping from the Japanese held island of Batavia Leslie Calvin's, Merle Oberon, passenger ship was torpedoed off the island of Madagascar with all on board, including her parents, lost under the waves of the Indian Ocean and her and only three other persons surviving the carnage. Now in a New Orleans hospital ward Leslie gets the word from the doctor, Alan Napier, the good news in that her relatives in the bayou swamps of Belleville Louisiana Aunt Emily and Uncle Norbert, Fay Bainter & John Qualen, want to welcome her home there to recover from her terrible ordeal. As it turned out both Aunt Emily and Uncle Norbert were not the masters of their own home. It was the creepy manager Mr. Sydney, Thomas Mitchell, who in fact was in control of the place and the two were only there for his both personal and financial interests. There was also Mr. Sidney's assistant Cleeve played by Elisha Cook Jr in a rare romantic, if you can call it that, role who developed the hots for the very demurer and sensitive Louise and made no bones in hiding his feelings about her.
It's when the handsome kind and understanding country doctor George Grover,Franchot Tone, came on the scene to treat the emotionally wrecked, due to her experience at sea, Leslie that things started to get a bit wild in the bayou in that Mr. Sydney started to lose it in seeing that the good doctor was about to uncover his attempt to drive Leslie insane and even to the brink of suicide. With her thinking, due to Mr. Sydney's sleazy tactics, she's going insane Leslie is saved from a nervous breakdown by former handyman, who was fired from his job by Mr. Sydney, Person Jackson, Rex Ingram, who's been snooping around the premises ever since and sleeping in the swamps, as well as catching and eating crew-fish, since his involuntary departure from the place.It's Preston who filled Lousie in to what was really going on and in the end paid for it with his life.
***SPOILERS*** Dr.Grover who had since fell in love with his patient Leslie Calvin then went out of his way to save her life from the evil Mr. Sydney and his henchman the hopped up, on testosterone, and sexually starved Cleeve but almost got himself killed in doing it. Using the divide and conquer technique Dr. Grover gets the two, Mr. Sydney & Cleeve, to turn against each other thus doing the work, dirty & deadly work, for him. With Louise now knowing that she in fact wasn't going insane she now was going to tie the knot with her handsome and knight in shining amour and stethoscope Dr. Grover who saved her from the terrible situation that she found herself in.
