Description by OLDIES.com:

"Port of Hate...a melting pot in the South Seas where lust, greed and hatred reigns..."

On a remote Pacific atoll known as the "Port of Hate," missionary Mary Gale is kidnapped while tending to the victims of an epidemic. She is brought before Wing Su, the crime lord who controls the island. Mary is ordered to assassinate an American adventurer, Don Cameron, who is interfering with the gangster's smuggling operation. With murder her only path to freedom, Mary insinuates herself into Cameron's life by feigning romantic interest. But when the time comes to kill him, Mary finds herself unable to pull the trigger. Her deception worked all too well, and she now truly loves the rugged adventurer. With Wing Su's men hot on their trail, the young couple will have to fight their way off the Port of Hate to escape with their lives.

This potboiler from short-lived studio Metropolitan Pictures stars gorgeous Polly Ann Young, younger sister of screen icon Loretta Young. She is perhaps best remembered as the heroine of the Bela Lugosi thriller Invisible Ghost (1941). The film was initially meant to take place in a cabaret, and involve showgirls being sold into marriage. This idea was dropped when the Hays Office rejected the script, arguing that "white slavery" was immoral and could be in no way be depicted. The exotic, Japanese-born Toshia Mori (here credited as Shia Jung) began her career appearing alongside Lon Chaney in Mr. Wu (1927). The only non-Caucasian actress selected to be a WAMPAS Baby Star, she also received critical acclaim for her role in Frank Capra's The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1933), playing a part originally intended for Anna May Wong.
