On a ship from Africa to the USA, Doris (Anita Page) & her fiancé Franklin
(Kenneth Thomson) are trying to get hold of 2 ship musicians, Gordon (Charles
Starrett) & Eddie (Eddie Borden), as Doris thinks Gordon ahs committed a
crime her own brother was convicted for. Then though the ship is wrecked &
the only survivors who make it to a remote & isolated corner of Africa are ...
Gordon, Eddie, Doris & Franklin of course.
At first of course Doris & Franklin don't want to have anything to do
with the others, but soon they realize they are dependent from one another,
& together they start searching for a way out ... until one day, Gordon
saves Doris from a lion - saving girls from lions, that's always an
ice-breaker. Now, Doris' defenses towards Gordon begin to crumble, & she
becomes quite infatuated by him, much to the dismay of Franklin, who dislikes
& distrusts Gordon - & proves to be rather annoying company to all of
Then one day, our quartet sees a large part of their shipwreck floating by,
& when they board it they realize the captain (Clarence Geldart) is still
on board (!), albeit dieing. Doris seizes the opportunity & has him marry
her to Gordon (!!!) with his dieing breath - again much to the dismay of
Then our quartet of castaways sees a ship coming by, & now Franklin sees
the perfect opportunity to legally get his competitor to Doris' heart out of
the way by handing him over to the authorities, but Gordon knocks him out &
makes for the jungle ...
Weeks later Doris returns to their little home in the remotest corner of
Africa, & of course meets Gordon there & tells him her brother has
still confessed to the crime she initially held Gordon responsible for, &
now they can finally get back to civilisation legally martried - after a little
honeymoon in the jungle ...
Refreshingly naive cheap jungle drama, with all the usual trappings
including massive use of stock footage, & some innocently erotic overtones.
