Overview

Originally slated for released through Grand National Pictures, Isle of Destiny was redirected to RKO Radio when Grand National folded in late 1939. June Lang stars as Virginia Allerton, a famous aviatrix who crashlands in a remote South Sea Island a la Amelia Erhardt! and is promptly kidnapped by gun-runner Barton Gilbert Roland. Coming to Virginia's rescue are two-fisted US marines Stripes Thornton William Gargan and Milly Barnes Wallace Ford. Also figuring into the storyline are Katherine DeMille as a sultry native with a predilection of disposing of her enemies with poison darts, and septugenarian Etienne Girardot in his last film appearance as Barton's semi-comic assistant. Too long by about two reels, Isle of Destiny has the advantage of eye-pleasing Cosmocolor cinematography.
