Julie (Crawford), a cafe entertainer in a town near a French penal colony, meets Verne (Gable), a prisoner on wharf duty. Verne escapes and goes to Julie's room but is apprehended and returned to prison. Julie is fired for consorting with a prisoner. At the prison, Moll (Albert Dekker) has masterminded a jailbreak and takes Cambreau (Ian Hunter), Telez (Eduardo Ciannelli), Hessler (Paul Lukas), Flaubert (J. Edward Bromberg), Dufond (John Arledge), and Mi'sieu Pig (Peter Lorre) with him. Verne joins the escapees, taking Julie with him. The gentle Cambreau exerts a spiritual influence over the others. As they trek through the jungle, most die with only Verne, Julie, Hessler, and Cambreau surviving the ordeal (Hessler--a devil figure--disdains Cambreau's salvation and is last seen slinking off into the jungle, to find another female prey.) Verne initially scoffs at Cambreau's spirituality, but saves him from drowning, and decides to return to the prison to finish his sentence. Julie has grown to love Verne and promises to wait for him.

This was made by mainstream Hollywood in 1940 with two of the biggest stars. this was Clark gable's first role since GWTW and he is paired for the last time with Joan Crawford.
The setting is a devil island prison and is an escape story with a spiritual side line.
Well worth a watch
