Pre-Code Double Feature – Hell Harbor/Jungle Bride

Hell Harbor: A Caribbean island harbor is the exquisite backdrop for treachery and romance as Anita (Lupe Velez), a descendant of the infamous Morgan the Pirate, gets in the middle of a dispute between her father Harry (Gibson Gowland), who has killed a man, and grimy pearl trader Horngold (Jean Hersholt), who witnessed the crime and demands Anita’s hand (and more) in marriage in exchange for his silence!

Jungle Bride: Two women and two men are shipwrecked on an island off the African coast, and take up housekeeping and other forms of dilly-dally in this definite pre-code film.  Charles Starrett has his way with Anita Page, or is it the other way around?
