Did You Know?
The film has never had a theatrical release. Production began in 1930 under the title "Contraband", stopped when the producers ran out of money, then began again under the title "Contraband Cargo". Production soon stopped again and was not resumed until 1939, when new footage was shot and footage from Hell Harbor
(1930) was edited in. The film was still deemed not suitable for theatrical distribution, and it wasn't until 1949 that it was finally released--to television. See more
