Director Marion Gering, whose credits extended back to the silent era, must have worked overtime trying to inject entertainment value in Sarumba. Despite the unpromising material given him, for the most part Gering succeeded. Filmed on location in Havana, the story concerns an AWOL sailor (Tommy Wonder) and a beautiful cabaret dancer (Doris Dowling). Though the girl is affianced to a wealthy man (Michael Whalen), the sailor wins out. The film's best moments occur on the dance floor, with star Tommy Wonder handily out-tapping any and all comers.
