Through impenetrable jungles, across perilous swamps, desperate for a second chance at life, a band of Devil's Island felons and a tough-as-nails prostitute struggle toward freedom. Among them is a mysterious, quiet-spoken visionary who may be literally the escapees' salvation.
Film giants Clark Gable and Joan Crawford team for the eighth and last time in this gripping story that explores the lures of the flesh and the transcendence of the spirit. Gable is at his peak as a flinty convict who lusts after floozy Crawford from the moment he nabs her discarded cigarette.
Fighting each other and the elements, the stars imbue this provocative adventure with audacity, power and passion.
