Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Blonde from Singapore was one of several Columbia B-pictures that were presold to exhibitors on the basis of their titles alone. Pilot Terry Prescott (Leif Erickson), forced to resort to poaching pearl beds to keep financially afloat, makes the acquaintance of ex-showgirl Mary Brooke (Florence Rice) in a Singapore dive. Prescott surreptitiously slips his ill-gotten pearls in Mary's handbag, intending to retrieve them when the heat's off without the girl's knowledge. But this proves impossible when Mary heads off to parts unknown, obliging Terry to chase after the girl, gradually falling in love with her all the while. Director Edward Dmytryk was clearly destined for better films than Blonde From Singapore, but he handles this sow's ear as if it were a silk purse.
