Danger and Death in the Bayou, or Just What the Doctor Ordered

Merle Oberon is Leslie Calvin, the heiress daughter traveling by steamship from the East Indies to New Orleans with her wealthy parents. World War Two had finally come to the family plantation in the East Indies, so Leslie and her parents quickly escaped on a trading ship. Unfortunately, before reaching America, the ship sinks, with only four survivors. Leslie is one of the survivors, taken to a hospital in New Orleans.

When Leslie wakes up in the hospital, she explains to the doctor that with her parents gone, her only living relatives are an aunt and uncle that Leslie has never met. The doctor sends a letter to her aunt and uncle, who live in New York City, but when the response arrives, it was from a small town only ninety miles away from New Orleans.

Of course, her aunt and uncle tell her that she is more than welcome to come and live with them at their sugar plantation, nestled in the remote alligator and quicksand filled bayous of Louisiana. They explain that they had moved to a plantation bequeathed to Uncle Norbert and are no longer living in New York City.

When Leslie arrives at the train station, her aunt and uncle are not waiting for her, and the people of the town have never heard of her aunt and uncle. How very strange. With the help of the kindly country doctor, Leslie is taken to the remote plantation in the middle of the lonely bayou. But no worries, what could go wrong in the peaceful, lonely bayous of Louisiana, for wealthy orphan girl Leslie? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
