Directed by Victor Fleming • 1932 • United States
Starring Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, Gene Raymond
Jean Harlow and Clark Gable sizzle in the second of their six screen pairings, a torrid, illicit romance as steamy as its jungle setting. From the first moment that wisecracking sex worker Vantine (Harlow) takes refuge on the remote rubber plantation run by Dennis Carson (Gable) in French Indochina, he sizes her up as an easy mark for his virile charms. But when Carson throws her over for Barbara (Mary Astor), the elegant wife of a research engineer (Gene Raymond), white-hot passion soon turns into red-hot jealousy and rage.
