Love, Death and the Island Girl

Our romantic adventure begins on a remote island in the South Seas where we meet a fellow in a bar getting totally drunk with the help of a gal that sings at the bar. Suddenly a man enters and pleads with the fellow to come along because Diana St. Claire, a wealthy woman visiting the island, needs a doctor badly. The fellow drowning his sorrows in alcohol is Dr. David Yorke, played by Conrad Nagel. Once a prominent London surgeon, he fled to the remote island after he failed to save the life of his best friend's son, and has given up his career in favor of wasting away in Margaritaville . . . OK, that is not the name of the island or the bar, but I just couldn't resist . . . . The doctor tends to the blonde gal's broken leg, and they fall in love with each other. This leads to that and we discover that she is married to a wealthy London man who neglects her because he is so busy chasing young actresses all over London. This leads to that and Dr. Yorke actually saves the life of this skunk when he is sailing his yacht near the island some months later. The wealthy London playboy takes the doctor back to London and makes him famous again . . . . And one night when the wealthy playboy takes the Doctor to his mansion for drinks and dinner, Dr. Yorke discovers that the blonde gal he fell in love with on the remote South Seas Island is this fellow's wife. Sheesh, what a mess this could become! After a few scenes with the doctor, the dutiful wife, the playboy and his actress girlfriend, we are totally ready for this playboy skunk to hit some bad times. Unfortunately, one night the old boy has some heart trouble, and while the doctor is tending to him, and the dutiful wife is standing by, the worst happens. While the doctor is in another room calling for a heart specialist, he hears the blonde wife scream, and when he rushes into the room he discovers that her husband is dead . . . . But not from his bad heart . . . . He was poisoned with a powerful poison that the blonde wife had purchased on the South Seas Island to commit suicide with. After meeting the doctor she decided not to use the poison to commit suicide, but now it looks like she will go to prison for killing her playboy husband . . . . Unless the doctor can prove that she is innocent. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
