Red Dust (1932)

Please join us for Red Dust, the final film in season 5 of Lincoln Theater’s Classic Film Club celebrating the films of the Pre-Code Era in cinema. We are pleased to be joined at each screening by film historian and CFC host, Jeannie MacDonald, for a pre-film introduction and post-screening talkback.
When earthy prostitute Vantine (Jean Harlow) arrives at Dennis Carson’s (Clark Gable) rubber plantation in Indochina, she initiates a steamy affair with the rugged foreman, but is sent packing when the passion cools. Soon Dennis is joined by new employee Gary (Gene Raymond) and his classy but high-strung wife, Barbara (Mary Astor), who falls into Dennis’ arms while her husband is away. When Vantine returns, Dennis must decide between the refined adulteress and the tramp with the heart of gold.
