Directed by Victor Fleming
Pre-Production Code days that was pretty far -- Clark Gable & Jean Harlow exude sexuality, openly lusting for each other & spreading hormones around the screen. Harlow's lines of dialogue are both witty & suggestive, while Gable talks with his eyes and his hands. They were a perfect cinematic match and this film was such a big success that they would repeat the same basic plot 3 years later in China Seas (1935), although the Code would cause that film to be a bit more tame.
This film is without a doubt is the best of Harlow and Gable ever made together. Harlow is magnificent and looks like a dream. She puts Gable in his place every time he utters a word. Together, they are magic - such chemistry! The rest of the cast just fades when these two melt together.
Two scenes that are memorable - Harlow bathing in the water barrel and cleaning out the parrot's cage. She is terrific -- There is no other blonde bombshell that even comes close to this original, during her heyday.
Mary Astor's character is also very well done as we see and believe that Clark is just so tempted by her and she by him.
* Special Footnote: -- Greta Garbo was originally cast as Vantine. But when the script underwent drastic re-writes, the role was recast with Jean Harlow.
** Another Special Footnote: -- During filming of the famous rain barrel sequence, Jean Harlow reportedly stood up - topless - and called out something along the lines of "one for the boys in the lab!" Director Victor Fleming quickly removed the film from the camera to prevent any footage from reaching the black market.

Harlow plays a lovably hooker, Vantine, who winds up staying at a South-east Asian rubber plantation run by Carson (Gable). Although Carson is not immediately smitten with the platinum cutie, they end up falling for each other and the sexual chemistry here is like nothing I have seen before. Others in the cast are Mary Astor, who plays the annoying other woman, Barbara. A boring society wife who ends up staying at the plantation with her sick husband (Gene Raymond) while he recovers from his ailment. Carson soon falls for Barbara and the sexual tension between the 3 is explosive.
There is a lot of comedy, romance, drama and action here so the film moves along at a steady pace. Although there are moments in the film that I always question, for instance, Gable falling head over heels for the cold Barbara, is a bit of a mystery to me, especially when being in the company of another more exiting gal (Harlow) and the characters are sometimes a bit loopy but this film still smoulders and is one that I never get tired of watching. The performances are also solid throughout and seeing Harlow in her earlier roles and comparing them to her performance here, you see how much she evolved as an actress and comedian. No longer wooden on screen (see "The Secret Six" or "The Public Enemy" for some stiff Harlow performances), she delivers her lines with ease and with a comedic flair that would make her one of Hollywood's most enduring stars. Her platinum baby doll look exuded sex and a girlish innocence that was a winning combination for audiences. Gable also heats things up and despite being cast as the stubborn, macho, head strong man's man, he is likeable. And although I have been a little rough on Astor, since I am not a big fan of her character, she plays Barbara well. I especially like her demeanor when she walks out and catches Gable having a few words with the naked Vantine as she takes a bath inside the water barrel (classic scene) and she definitely knows how to kiss her leading man.
My only complaints lie with the DVD. There are no extras or exciting bonus features included here other than the trailer. I would have loved to have seen a photo gallery, some production stills, cast biographies and considering this is basically a bare-bones DVD, the price is a bit high. Other than that, the film is a treat. Great stars, great comedy and highly recommended.
Directed by Victor Fleming and set on a rubber plantation in Indochina, RED DUST has Clark Gable as the plantation overseer falling head over heels for the wife of a hired engineer, played respectively by Mary Astor and Gene Raymond. All the while Gable has his hands full trying to keep a stranded prostitute, Jean Harlow, from gumming up his designs on Astor.
What may sound as a routine, adultery/quadrangle romance is transformed into a lively, steamy romp that satisfies even after multiple viewings, thanks to the capable guidance of Fleming and the terrific, red-hot chemistry of Gable and Harlow. Of the six films they made together, RED DUST comes out on top. When they're on, our attention is glued to the screen. The production values are also impressive, boasting a huge, man-made jungle set fully equipped with an extensive overhead sprinkler system to provide the incessant rainstorm that serves as a metaphor for the emotional torrent surging within the characters. In watching this movie, one can truly appreciate the creativity of the studio system during this period and its expertise in projecting realism through sheer artifice. We really feel like we're in a humid, insect infested jungle and not on an MGM soundstage. Contrary to the opinion that early '30's movies suffered for lack of a music score, RED DUST makes us forget the fact that the only music heard is in the opening and closing titles. The performances are rich and the dialog is snappy and forceful, which keeps it all moving at a brisk pace. There's never a dull moment. I've watched it many times and it's always a pure delight.
RED DUST was remade in 1953 as MOGAMBO, and was directed by John Ford with Gable repeating his role. This time around he's supported by Ava Gardner in the Harlow role and Grace Kelly in the Astor role. Reset in Africa, the remake benefits by some beautiful Technicolor location photography, but even that can't substitute for the spicier handling of the material in the less restraining days of 1932. While Gable is still Gable, Gardner and Kelly (early in her career) aren't quite up to par with their original counterparts. Gardner fares better than Kelly, but she just can't replace the potent memory of Harlow.
At last available from the Warner Bros. Archive Collection, this DVD-R of RED DUST looks and sounds great, having been transferred off a clean, crisp source print. The only extra is a 1932 Spanish trailer that's interesting because it contains a brief bit of a scene that didn't make the final cut.
If you're looking for a film that's representative of the best of pre-code Hollywood and also features two of its most charismatic stars, RED DUST delivers it in spades.
Stormy, steamy Pre-Code necessity involving the bad (the 2 leads), the wavering (Astor) and the good (Gene Raymond as Astor's husband out to prove his worthiness while turning a blind eye to any possibility of misdeed by his mentor-to-be Gable).
I'm tempted to say that Harlow and Gable were never better, but with every one of their movies I watch/have watched I get pulled in by the magnetism, that which makes everything else around me seem better for having been informed by this entertainment.
This one is a prime example of why we still glue ourselves to the screen for these movies. True Stars.
What will happen? Whew, if you are asking this, then are you in for a treat. A journey, too, to a faraway land that no longer exists in real life (and perhaps never did), yet awaits you on your screen.
Just also want to say that I have never had an issue with "Warner Brothers Archive Collection" DVD-Rs. I watch them on a nothing-fancy DVD player (not a computer).
