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.
