Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The action in Flame of the Argentine is evenly divided between New Orleans and South America. Movie newcomer Orville B. Caldwell plays Department of Justice operative Dan Prescott, at present on the trail of a valuable emerald necklace. Evelyn Brent co-stars as Inez Ramirez, sexy dancer in a seedy New Orleans cabaret. What Inez doesn't know is that she's the daughter of Donna Aguila (Florence Turner), owner of a vast Argentine emerald mine. But villain Emil Tover (Frank Leigh) does know this, and he intends to put Inez out of the way so that he can lay claim to the mine himself upon Donna Aguila's demise. Meanwhile, Dan Prescott poses as an adventurer-for-hire, waiting for the right opportunity to reveal that he's one of the Good Guys.
