White cargo


White cargo
   Earl Carroll produced Leon Gordon's lurid three-act melodrama at the Greenwich Village Theatre on 5 November 1923, where it was a runaway hit scoring 702 performances despite predominately negative critical response. Longford, a moralistic young man, takes over a West African plantation and falls in love with Tondelayo, a half-caste girl. He desires marriage, but she becomes disenchanted and attempts to poison him. Longford leaves and his friends force Tondelayo to drink the poison she prepared for him. Carroll revived White Cargo in 1926 and an early sound motion picture version appeared in 1930. Its 1942 screen incarnation caused a sensation when Czech actress Hedy Lamarr played Tondelayo.
