Synopsis

Trevor Howard is a clerk in a South Seas trading post who gets involved in a smuggling plot via a secret sea route, eventually betraying his employer and destroying himself in the process. The film confronts the core theme of Conrad's novel - the battles of the noble and the ignoble. It enjoyed enormous publicity - mainly in the form of Kerima, the sultry starlet who brings the downfall of the shiftless trader, Howard.
