Red Dust

A hard-living overseer of a rubber plantation in Indochina, Gable has never been more the unwitting prey of wily women, nor more aggressive. Harlow, a prostitute on the run from Saigon authorities, is vulnerable yet tough.

Rating: 4.5/5 -- Everything you don't expect from that most conservative of studios Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. It is rough, brief, to the point and gleefully trashy. Full Review

Description by

From the first moment wisecracking Vantine (Jean Harlow) takes refuge on the plantation run by Carson (Clark Gable), he sizes her up as an easy mark for his virile charm. But when a research engineer (Gene Raymond) and his elegant wife, Barbara (Mary Astor), appear on the scene, Carson falls hard for the beautiful Barbara, discarding Vantine as nothing more than a "cute little trick." The steamy rivalry between the women soon boils into a jealous rage -- with violent consequences.
