Description by OLDIES.com:
Drawn by their forbidden passions, a beautiful Mohammedan Moro princess and her lover, a pagan pearl diver, defy religious and moral laws and flee her arranged marriage to another. The ruler of a primitive Philippine Island has promised his daughter Benita's hand to a nearby noble chief. As the town prepares for Benita's planned betrothal, Asan sneaks into the royal compound and steals away with his beloved. Vowing to make the infidel pay with his life, the inflamed tribesmen launch a furious pursuit to recapture their princess. Beautifully filmed on location, using local Moro tribesmen, this forgotten 1934 film provides a rare glimpse into a lost culture.
BONUS: Killers of the Chaparral (1930, B&W): Beneath the beautiful desert and mountain landscape, rages a relentless struggle for life and death. Directed by William Allen.
A ravishing Mohammedan Moro princess and her pagan pearl diver lover risk their lives in the name of true love. Benita is the cherished daughter of a high ranking Philippine priest. Her father has promised her to a local chief, but Benita's true love is Asan. On the eve of Benita's arranged marriage, Asan appears and the two run away together. But their initial joy is short-lived, because the tribe is determined to bring Benita back, and kill the heathen who tried to steal her away.
