Product Description

From the first moment wisecracking Vantine (Harlow) takes refuge on the plantation run by Carson (Gable), he sizes her up as an easy mark for his virile charm. But when a research engineer (Gene Raymond) and his elegant wife, Barbara (Mary Astor), appear on the scene, Carson falls hard for the beautiful Barbara, discarding Vantine as nothing more than a "cute little trick." The steamy rivalry between the women soon boils into a jealous rage - with violent consequences. Oscar-«-winning Best Director Victor Fleming (Gone with the Wind, 1939) deftly orchestrates the script's tense drama and hilarious erotic comedy, helping Gable and Harlow turn Red Dust into pure gold.

By Amazon Customer HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on March 26 2003
Format: VHS Tape
The 1932 film "Red Dust," the first cinematic pairing of platinum blondeshell Jean Harlow and the virile Clark Gable, is obviously inspired by the success of Somerset Maugham's "Rain." Once again we have a fallen woman, Vantine Jefferson (Harlow), a Saigon prostitute, running from the police who hides out on an Indo-China rubber plantation run by an unshaven Dennis Carson (Gable). Harlow's character talks tough, but she is a sizzling sexpot (this is the film where she takes a bath in a rain barrel) who sasses him back every time he tries to give her the business. Soon he falls for all of her vamping and tries to get her to accept some meony so she can start her life anew some place else.
The next boat arrives at the plantation and delivers engineer Gary Willis (Gene Raymond) and his wife, Barbara (Mary Astor). Willis has been stricken with fever and while he recovers Carson forgets about Vantine and falls for Barbara. Then things start getting really complicated. But the main attraction here is these characters wallowing in sins of the flesh in a film made two years before the Code cleaned up Hollywood (and five years before Harlow's death at the age of 26). You will never think the same thoughts about your favorite cheese again after watching Harlow and Gable tackle the subject. Gable acts the part of a first-rate cad for most of the film while Harlow drips innuendo about her sleeping habits. Even Astor as the adulterous "Babs" has her moments, as when she and Gable share their first kiss after he rescues her from a monsoon that leaves her drenched.
"Red Dust" is one of those black & white pre-Code films that is steamier than the vast majority of contemporary films that try to deal with the idea of sex.

RED DUST has become a classic primarily because of the romantic teaming of Gable and Harlow in roles perfectly suited to his virile charm and her unique brand of earthy humour. The sexy team generated a lot of chemistry between them and the public was enthralled! Dennis Carson (Clark) manages a rubber plantation in Indochina. Vantine (Jean) is a shrewd, wisecracking blonde tart with a heart of gold who shows up unexpectedly and her sardonic wit is rampant throughout the film. Gable as the stalwart plantation overseer further solidified his reputation as a romantic leading man - but it's Harlow's portrayal of Vantine which really lingers in the memory. Shrewd, brassy, honest and sensuous, she is the quintessential tart with a golden heart; this is one of her prime roles. Mary Astor does okay in her role as the lady-like Barbara whereas Gene Raymond's interpretation of her husband verges on being trite as he hero worships Gable (until the conclusion). The Chinese houseboy would not be seen in todays films but Donald Crisp and Tully Marshall are fine as the guys who share their quarters with Dennis. Victor Fleming, who had persuaded a reluctant Gable to accept the role of Dennis skillfully directed the film with a primary emphasis on characterisation and atmosphere - the result is a movie which broke box office records in 1932 and remains unforgettable today.

"Red Dust" proved such a success for Clark Gable that he starred in the remake "Mogambo" over twenty years later, in the very same role. That doesn't happen very often, you know! He's a man's man, all hard liquor and sweat, and he takes a liking, naturally enough, to the floozy who drifts onto his rubber plantation, Jean Harlow. Things are pretty cozy for them until the Upper Crust couple arrive, naive Gene Raymond and his prim and proper wife Mary Astor. Then Gable takes a liking to HER, and the fur flies with Harlow. "Red Dust" is a barrel of fun that ought to interest even the most casual of viewers==just check out that impassioned kissing of Mary Astor!

Hot, muggy, sultry....and that just describes the stars, let alone the jungle setting. Harlow pines and poses for Gable while he chases his surveyor's wife (Mary Astor). This one is for the grown-ups or at least teenagers. Gable is a carefree bachelor on a rubber plantation when the local fluzzy, Harlow, shows up in distress. He invites her in for comfort and whatever else. When the city folks arive for a work contract, Gable has eyes only for the man's wife. We get a nasty triangle going with the best surprise ending you may have ever seen. I'm startled by it every time. Highly recommended.

This movie was remade in the 50's as Mogambo, also starring Clark Gable. This version is much better. Set in an Asian rubber plantation, Gable is the owner who falls for the new foreman's wife (Mary Astor). Also present is a prostitute (Jean Harlow) who is in love with Gable's character. Trouble ensues when the foreman discovers what's going on, and Gable has to decide between the two girls. Good fun.
