The pretty former showgirl Dorothy Sebastian improbably plays a South Pacific native girl in this silent clinker. She encounters a bank cashier (Conway Tearle) who is escaping an unjust accusal of embezzlement. He has fled the country in favor of the tropics. He finds the native girl, in her various states of undress, quite tempting but nevertheless stays true to his sweetheart back home. When the bank cashier encounters a raging drunk, the native girl saves his life but herself is killed -- rather conveniently, because shortly thereafter, the sweetheart arrives to fetch him back home. This silly film didn't do much for either Sebastian or Tearle's careers.
