Fortunately....

....the White Man is here to help the natives who are no more than big children.That says it all!Proof positive ,one more time,that finer feelings do not produce great works.

De Baroncelli is not much of a director,and his two stars,Victor Francen and Harry Baur,left to their own devices ,overract in a ludicrous way...The screenplay is terribly dull and far-fetched.Francen contracts leprosy in Africa;he is ashamed (why?)and does not listen to good doctor Baur's good piece of advice:he leaves his fiancée and disappears.But a few years later,much to the girl's surprise,he's this mysterious man who hides on a building site .Unfortunately for him ,she is married now....
