The all-purpose title No Place to Go was affixed to this adaptation of the Richard Connell story Isles of Romance. The film opens on what seems to be a perilous moment from a jungle epic -- but which turns out to be part of a floor show at a ritzy nightclub. After this promising opening, the story settles into a conventional romantic yarn wherein starry-eyed heiress Mary Astor yearns for a "cave man" who will treat her rough and make her like it. Her boyfriend Lloyd Hughes is likeable enough, but Astor wants nothing to do with him because he refuses to be forceful. Only when hero and heroine are trapped on a desert island does Astor realize that Hughes isn't a wimp after all -- but it takes more than a few real-life perils before she's willing to marry the boy.
