Two risque feature films from the early 1930s featuring the sizzling Lupe Velez, and Anita Page

HELL HARBOR: A Caribbean island harbor is the exquisite backdrop for treachery and romance as Anita (Lupe Velez), a descendant of the infamous Morgan the Pirate, gets in the middle of a dispute between her father Harry (Gibson Gowland), who has killed a man, and grimy pearl trader Horngold (Jean Hersholt), who witnessed the crime and demands Anita's hand (and more) in marriage in exchange for his silence! TWO VERSIONS: Both contain the pre-code footage •84 mins. Limited release version. Transferred from the only known 35mm nitrate print; quality fair. •64 mins. Subsequent, and widest-release version; trimmed to improve pacing. Transferred from a mint 35mm nitrate print. (Originally released in a 90 min. version of which only the sound track survives) JUNGLE BRIDE: Two women and two men are shipwrecked on an island off the African coast, and take up housekeeping and other forms of dilly-dally in this definite pre-code film. Charles Starrett (pre-Durango Kid) has his way with Anita Page, or is it the other way around?
