This was the eighth(!) and last time Clark Gable and Joan Crawford co-starred in a picture. She's a floozy dancehall girl and he's a prisoner in a French Guyana penal colony. They team up to escape the nasty island. The story's so-so and the religious symbolism is laid on pretty thick (a fellow escapee is a mysterious Christ figure)...and yet. There's that palpable chemistry of two Golden Age screen icons working their magic at the height of their popularity...he smirks, she smolders and we all swoon.
