Actor Ralph Graves was responsible for the original story upon which Vengeance was based -- although, perhaps wisely, he elected not to appear in the film. Dorothy Revier stars as Margaret, the sexy wife of Charles Summers (Philip Strange), the tyrannical owner of an African rubber plantation. Suffering from what one observer has described as "Somerset Maugham disease," Margaret is bored out of her gourd by her isolated existence. Thus, when handsome overseer John Meadham (Jack Holt) arrives on the scene, she throws herself at him. It's virtually impossible for John to resist Margaret's charms, prompting the despicable Charles to plot a horrible revenge. Somewhat surprisingly, action star Jack Holt never puts up his dukes, preferring to do his fighting with a glib tongue and quick wit.
