The heavy-breathing Singapore Mutiny owes a great deal to such previous passion-in-the-tropics efforts as Rain and The Hairy Ape. Estelle Taylor plays a shady Broadwayite who books passage on an oil tanker. It isn't long before the all-male crew degenerates into a brawling mob, maddened as they are by Taylor's dazzling beauty. But the girl has eyes only for stowaway Gardner James, who appears to be a spineless jellyfish until he asserts himself during the climactic mutiny. Director Ralph Ince, as usual, has reserved a plum leading role for himself, in this cast the part of the ship's brutish head stoker.
