Two alumni from the old Thomas Ince Studios -- director Emmet Flynn and Tom's actor-director brother Ralph -- collaborated on the lurid melodrama Yellow Fingers. Ralph Ince stars as Brute Shane, a South Pacific trader who has adopted native girl Saina (Olive Broden). When Shane rescues English lass Nora Deering (Claire Adams) from white slavers, the jealous Saina begins plotting Nora's demise. By film's end, however, the repentant Saina teams with Shane to rescue Nora from a second "fate worse than death." Yellow Fingers manages to have its cake and eat it too by contriving a last-minute plot device which allows Saina to be deliriously happy even without the man she loves.
