The Girl of the Port is a showgirl (Sally O'Neil), who finds herself stranded on the island of Fiji. While seeking a way home, she falls in love with an English nobleman (Reginald Sharland), who has come to Fiji to overcome his wartime-induced fear of fire. The nobleman's phobia again comes to surface when the showgirl's self-appointed boyfriend (Mitchell Lewis) forces our hero to participate in a Fijian fire-walking ritual. With the heroine's help, the nobleman overcomes his terror and trounces his rival. Its intriguing storyline notwithstanding, this was one picture that could really have used a stronger cast.
