Poverty Row Preserved

This two-strip Technicolor rarity is a tale of crazed colonialism. Set in German East Africa, it tells of a rich, sadistic, villainous plantation owner (Jean Hersholt) who imports an aristocratic bride (Eleanor Boardman) from the old country, only to find her falling instead for a British officer.
