Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Filmed on a shoestring budget, Life's Crossroads at least affords a good acting opportunity for the underrated Gladys Hulette. The actress plays a shipwreck victim who washes up on the coast of an African island in the company of fellow survivor Mahlon Hamilton. Though hero and heroine cannot stand each other, they are forced to work together to survive in their new environment. The couple is rescued by a seemingly benevolent plantation owner, who turns out to be a no-good skunk, planning to murder Hamilton and claim Hulette as his mistress. But the heroine turns the tables on the villain, rescuing the bedridden hero from a grisly fate. Want to bet that Hulette and Hamilton no longer hate each other?
