Chris Hunter is a sly newsreel reporter. While in Shanghai doing reports on the Chinese-Japanese war, he meets pilot Alma Harding. At first she doesn't trust him, but by a trick he manages to get her hired as his assistant. During an adventurous expedition through the jungles of South America he manages to change her view of him.Written by

After Marion Davies left Warners in 1937, she was offered the role of Alma Harding, a chance to return to MGM (where she had been 1924-34) and a chance to work with Clark Gable for a third time, but William Randolph Hearst disliked the story line about newsreels and fake news. See more »
When Chris is screening the raw footage of the plane crash, it is already completely edited with multiple camera angles and shot with various lenses, even though only one camera was supposedly used to film it, and the footage is supposed to be raw. See more »
We wish to thank Her Majesty's Governor of Netherlands Guiana for permitting our expedition to enter the jungles of the Tottiekampu country. Our thanks also to Chief Moi of the Matawais tribe for allowing us to record for the first time the sights and sounds of the Djuka Fire Dance Ritual. See more »
When I saw the first time this movie I was a teenager and now after 15 years I have the same feelings, it's a masterpiece, really a great movie of the '30s. Yes I'm a fan of Clark Gable and Myrna Loy. Everybody can enjoy the speech the timing, the screenplay. Gable at his best, don't forget that in '38 Gable and Loy were nominated King and Queen of Hollywood. Why?
Just watch the movie and immediately realized!Let's have a lot of fun and malencony of a period that will never come back again.
Walter Connoly was a great actor and his part of journalist was remarkable.
Really a must to see for all of you who like the golden period of Hollywood and the movies of his king and queen.
