Overview

Night Cargo

Silent screen juvenile Lloyd Hughes, who once starred opposite Mary Pickford, found himself headlining this ultra-low-budget melodrama, the final release from Poverty Row company Peerless Pictures Corp. Searching for his long-lost love, Bruce Donaldson (Hughes) makes the acquaintance of Shark Moran (Walter Miller), a Singapore planter who eventually makes him his partner. Unbeknownst to Bruce, his missing fiancée, Claire Martineau (Jacqueline Wells), is working as a dancer in a Singapore dive under the name of Marty. Shark, who is bankrolling the dive, asks Marty to marry him but she is still pining for the man who once left her because his wealthy family took a dim view of showgirls. When Marty presents him with a photograph of Bruce, Shark flies into a rage and is stabbed by the girl's faithful servant (Jimmy Aubrey). While trying to flee, Marty runs into Bruce who brings her to the plantation. There, Tiana (Carlotta Monti), Shark's servant who has been trying to seduce Bruce, accuses Marty of murdering her employer. In the end, however, a witness acknowledges that Shark was killed in self-defense by Marty's servant and the lovers are reunited.
