Trivia

When Carole Lombard hears the jungle drums she makes the startling remark (for a not overly sophisticated picture about lust in the jungle) that the rhythm reminds her of Ravel's "Bolero." It's a bit less surprising, though, when one considers it as a bit of advance promotion: Lombard's next picture was Bolero, in which the Ravel piece is used for the climactic dance number.

Quotes

Ballister: Time you loosened up a bit. It's taken you longer than it takes most of them to give me a tumble. Come on now, Baby, chuck the high hat.
Judith Denning: Did you think I was singing for you?
Ballister: Trying to get the old man's goat, huh? What's the matter, don't he care for music?
Ballister: Quit kidding yourself, pal. You could do a lot worse in this hole than give me a tumble. I've had my eye on you ever since I stepped on this tub. Yeah, and you've known I'm here too, haven't you? Come on, now, say it. I've watched those big ...

Miscast White Woman
26 March 2018 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

A nightclub singer marries the rich owner of a rubber plantation. When she returns with him to his estate in Malaysia, she finds out that he is cruel, vicious and insanely jealous. She and the plantation's overseer develop a mutual attraction, but are terrified at what will happen if her husband finds out.

A slow moving film that is clearly done in the studio. Carole Lombard is way miscast in her role, unfortunately.

The movie is only interesting to watch Charles Laughton who is fascinating as the weird lord of the jungle!.
