Description by OLDIES.com:

Prominent Manhattan businessman Dick Martin is ruined when his adulterous wife runs off with his lawyer and his board of directors forces him out of the corporation that bears his name. To forget his woes, he takes a job on a tramp steamer as a stoker, endlessly shoveling coal into the ship's insatiable furnace. When an engine explodes, he saves the life of beautiful Margarita Valdez and the grateful passenger hires him to work on her Nicaraguan coffee plantation. Laboring in the steaming jungle, battling trigger-happy bandits, Martin finds a chance for redemption.

Monte Blue rose to prominence in the role of Danton in D.W. Griffith's 1921 epic, Orphans Of The Storm. The rugged silent star played opposite Gloria Swanson, Norma Shearer and Clara Bow before the sound era saw him transition to supporting roles. Produced by Allied Pictures Corporation, The Stoker features strong supporting performances by Dorothy Burgess, Natalie Moorehead and journeyman heavy Noah Beery.

Product Description:

Monte Blue appears in one of his last leading roles in this feature film from 1932. Blue plays Dick, a rich young man who becomes an aimless wanderer when his cruel wife Vera divorces him. After a while, Dick begins work as a stoker on a ship that's heading to South America, but eventually lands in jail at the corrupt hands of the Nicaraguan police. Having sworn off women eternally, Dick is surprised when he starts having feelings for a plantation owner (Dorothy Burgess) in need of rescuing.
