| Romantic adventure and chase from English countryside to Buenos Aires.
This is a charming showcase for the handsome John Lodge and Gertrude Michael who apparently had something going off-screen. The story is an engaging English production,a romantic adventure , and good enough for the American market. You will probably never have a chance to see this film but fortunately when my 16mm print deteriorated, I found a better one. Gertrude's performance is somewhat reminiscent of her Sophie Lang trilogy (1934-1937). John Lodge was a smoking hottie ! The story revolves around the purchase of several strands of rare black pearls. Each time Lodge attempts to finalize a deal he is outfoxed by Gertrude. The question is: how does she get the jump on him ? HIs irritation with her inevitably leads to romance. The climax reveals her identity and a happy conclusion.
