"American society beauty Barbara Howard arrives in Shanghai to visit her Aunt J.B., whom she thinks is very ill. At the docks, Barbara sees rickshaw driver Dmitri Koslov, a half Chinese who was once a Russian officer, beaten by the police at her feet and retrieves his cross pendant. When Barbara realizes J.B. is perfectly healthy and sent for Barbara so she would marry her suitor, Tommy Sherwood, she buys her ticket home by pawning J.B.'s mink coat. Meanwhile, Dmitri visits His Excellency, Lun Sing, an old friend of his recently deceased father. In order to repay a debt owed to Dmitri's father, Lun Sing gets Dmitri a job at a bank. Barbara and Dmitri meet again when he delivers a draft of $50,000 to Tommy from his father in New York, who has advised him to invest it instead of gambling. Barbara, who is immediately struck by the handsome Dmitri, suggests he handle Tommy's investments. After an evening at the stock exchange, Dmitri takes Barbara to see the real Shanghai, and she returns his cross, then burns her ticket home. Soon Dmitri makes a fortune in munitions stock and has built his own investment company, through which he buys controlling stock in the Shanghai Properties Company, which has been stalling the construction of new buildings. Lun Sing warns Dmitri against getting romantically involved with Barbara because he is sure her social set will reject Dmitri once they learn he is half Chinese. Not wanting to jeopardize Barbara's future, Dmitri refuses to see her. The property company, meanwhile, offers Dmitri a good price on his stock, but he declines their bribe, insisting the company begin building immediately. When Dmitri cancels a dinner date with Barbara, she arrives at his house furious and accuses him of making power his goddess. He kisses her through her angry tears and they swear their love. At a costume party, Dmitri announces to his guests that his mother was a Manchurian princess, hoping his ancestry won't matter to Barbara. She is shocked, however, and leaves immediately, along with all of Dmitri's European guests. Despondent, Dmitri leaves the city, missing a decisive vote at the company. Barbara, filled with regret, determinedly tracks Dmitri to his remote hideaway, and they later return to Shanghai together. There, Lun Sing finally tells Dmitri that his mother killed herself to free her husband and child from the prejudice that had left them humiliated and impoverished. Realizing for the first time that his parents' love could not conquer bigotry, Dmitri says good-bye to Barbara. She says she will always love him, and they look forward to a day when races can inter-marry without persecution"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"On the beautiful island of Samarang, in the Malay Straits, the natives of a small village depend on the ocean's bounty for their livelihood. The ocean is both provider and destroyer, for although the people cannot live without the fish and pearls for which they dive, they are often killed by sharks, octopi and other dangerous creatures. Mamounah, a venerable matron, relies on her sons, the brave Ahmang and fun-loving Ko-Hai, for support after all of her other relatives have perished in the water. Ahmang is in love with the vivacious Saiyu but has little hope of marrying her, for he is poor while she is a chieftain's daughter. Desperate to earn enough money so that he can marry Saiyu, Ahmang decides to sail on the ship of crafty Chang Fu and dive for pearls. Half of the male population of Samarang has been lost because of primitive pearl diving methods, and Chang Fu makes the excursion more risky by going near the island of Sakai, which is inhabited by cannibals. Chang Fu promises Ahmang his best pearl in exchange for help procuring other divers, and Ahmang agrees. Before the ship sails, the natives watch the ritual 'shadow show, in which performers warn the divers of the perils that await them. Ko-Hai, who is excited at being allowed to go on the excursion under his brother's protection, is heartbroken when, during the show, his pet mule-deer wanders off and is killed by a python. When the ship sails the next morning, the stoic Mamounah watches as her sons and Saiyu leave. Later, all appears to be going well as the ship anchors near Sakai, and the diving begins. Ahmang finds a large pearl, and the others also do well. Catastrophe strikes when they run out of fresh water and are forced to go ashore to search for more. The searchers are attacked by cannibals, and while most of them escape, Ahmang and Saiyu are left behind in the confusion. Eager to claim Ahmang's pearl for his own, Chang Fu gives the couple up for lost and sets sail. Although they are frightened by the wildlife, Ahmang and Saiyu make friends with an orangutang and find food. Chang Fu is forced to return to the island by the crew, and Ahmang and Saiyu are rescued. While everyone is rejoicing, Ko-Hai, determined to be as good a diver as his brother, jumps into the water. Saiyu sees a shark and alerts Ahmang, but despite Ahmang's attempt to save him, Ko-Hai is killed by the shark. The entire population grieves when his body is brought back, and Ahmang becomes obsessed by thoughts of revenge. Soon after, Ahmang and Saiyu return to the ocean and Ahmang kills the man-eating shark. By avenging his brother's death, Ahmang has proven his bravery, and soon receives permission to marry Saiyu. A happy Mamounah helps Saiyu prepare for the wedding and everyone enjoys the ceremony"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
