"Hedy Lamarr set the world aflame with her beauty in "Algiers" ! Now you see her in the arms of a dashing Bob Taylor !"
- 1 hr 32 min
Biracial beauty Manon De Vargnes (Hedy Lamarr) wants to get out of Saigon, Vietnam, but because of her half-caste status, she finds it impossible to obtain a passport. She initially sees downtrodden American Bill Carey (Robert Taylor) as merely her ticket out, but the pair soon fall in love. Half-caste millionaire Pierre Delaroch (Joseph Schildkraut), however, desires Manon for himself. When Manon and Bill marry, Pierre is furious and he uses his influence to undermine the lovers at every turn.
