Dale Jordan is first accepted by the aristocratic first-cabin passengers on a south-bound Panama-Pacific liner until they discover she is a member of a troupe of cabaret girls led by Trixie Snell en route for the Bull Ring Cabaret in Panama City. This makes no difference to Tom Baylor, San Blas mining engineer, who presents her with a bracelet upon their arrival in Panama. Tom departs for his mining location in the jungle and Dale is taken in tow by hard-boiled but good-hearted Jerry Royal, an old timer with Trixie's crew. Dale takes up with millionaire Jimmy Crosby who promises to get a divorce from his wife in the states, but is unable to and commits suicide by crashing his plane. Jerry and Dale go from one dive to the other in an effort to get enough money to go home. They land in The Cobra, one of the lowest dives in Panama, and Jerry is knifed in a saloon brawl. Written by

[Trixie comes upon one of her girls, a blonde, looking through her purse for her gin flask]
You'd forget your rosy cheeks if they weren't slapped on with a paintbrush!
I know I had it when I was with that traveling man last night.
Well, did you look in the First National?
[Blonde lifts up her skirt to check one of her garters. It is not there]

A somewhat disjointed story. Hooray for editing. There is no direct sensation in this movie as the sleeve of the DVD intimates. I am always interested in precode films and how they handled sex. This one has none. The story is eh. A great example of precode sex in films is the one with Constance Bennett The Common Law. Now thats a great story. Anyway its interesting to see Walter Brennan in a minor role and to see Preston Foster as our hero. Juanita Hansen as Trixie plays the alcoholic leader of the womens troupe entertaining sailors and various other vagabonds. The story jumps around too much to be given any serious consideration but I was curious you might be too.
