White Cargo (1942)

In director Richard Thorpe's melodramatic remake of the 1929 original:

  • tight sarong-clad, sultry, and exotic, dark-haired half-breed (Hollywood's code name for a non-white temptress) - an African, tan-skinned native girl named Tondelayo (Hedy Lamarr) seductively announcing herself with the popular catch-phrase in one of filmdom's greatest entrances: "I am Tondelayo"
  • the concluding scene of her poisoning
