    Lady of the Tropics
    It's "Never the Twain Shall Meet" time again in the MGM romantic melodrama Lady of the Tropics. The lady in question is half-caste Manon De Vargnes (Hedy Lamarr), a resident of prewar Saigon. American playboy Bill Carey (Robert Taylor) falls madly in love with Manon, but both have their crosses to bear: she is affianced to an Indochinese prince, and he is unable to secure a passport to bring her back to the United States. Adding to the dilemma is influential bureaucrat Pierre Delaroch (Joseph Schildkraut), who agrees to arrange an exit visa for Manon in exchange for a few "favors." Nothing good can come from this, and nothing does. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Lady of the Tropics is Hedy Lamarr's second Hollywood film from 1939. If you are a fan of Classic Hollywood or Hedy Lamarr this film will please you. She stars along side Leading Man Robert Taylor. Lamarr plays Manon deVargnes, a so-called half-caste whose father was French, whose mother was native, and whose dream of living in Paris as a Frenchwoman is doomed to failure by racism. Taylor is an American playboy, traveling on the yacht of his girlfriend's rich family. Of course they eventually get together after lots of drama and problems. Not the best film ever made but not as bad as many reviews make it out to be.
