MGM was pushing the moral envelope here, seeing just how far they could go with libidinous behavior - and in those pre-Production Code days that was pretty far. They were a perfect cinematic match and this film was such a big success that they would repeat the same basic plot 3 years later in CHINA SEAS, although the Code would cause that film to be a bit more covert.
Mary Astor adds a wrinkle to the plot as another fine-looking female for Gable to mate with, but the audience is never in any doubt that gorgeous Harlow will get him in the end. It should be noted that the story line contains racist elements, not unusual in a Hollywood film of that era. By the way, the bedtime story Harlow is reading Gable at the end of the movie is a parody - and a good one - of the animal stories by Thornton W.
Ahh, the white man's burden and then some, as Clark Gable fights the good fight against Mother Nature, indolent coolies, and the local loose women jean Harlow, playing "desperate for a break" throughout floating around Vietnam when all he's trying to do is harvest rubber for yankee tires and erasers. Loaded with jungle atmosphere and plenty of swelter, things only get hotter when "good" white woman Mary Astor arrives, needing a real man.
Red Dust is a American pre-Code, romantic drama film directed by Victor Fleming and starring Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, and Mary Astor. The film is based. Red Dust is a British drama film starring Hilary Swank and Chiwetel Ejiofor and directed by Tom Hooper. The story, written by Troy Kennedy Martin.
Along with the usual problems of too much rain or not enough rain in that part of the world, not to mention the large tiger that has his eyes on the parrot, that make such a business proposition risky and occasionally even gives Carson thoughts about leaving, now he has to deal with Vantine Jean Harlow who does not sleep that much at night. At first, they argue but eventually find peace together. Just as she is leaving on the same boat that is bringing in Gary Willis Gene Raymond , the new engineer, he finds that along with tennis rackets, he is bringing along a wife Mary Astor.
The central message is that one should not always go by first impressions and how people can surprise you, especially in the relationship between Carson and Vantine. However, I know this may be unfair with about eight decades of hindsight but it is disappointing that director Victor Fleming does not heed this same advice when it comes to the natives, going by Carson's and Willis' observations alone of how lazy they are.
