Audience Reviews for Four Frightened People
1934, OK? Four ship passengers flee Bubonic Plague onboard. They meet Leo Carrillo, the only "Englishman" on the island they row to. The jungle awaits and they have to walk through it. Torn clothes and dangers. Three of the people have major personality changes. Claudette Colbert as a frightened schoolteacher with hair in a bun...to start with. The Four manage to survive the ordeal. One of them forces population control on a tribe that took her hostage. C. B. DeMille, but don't prejudge it by that.
Utter balderdash with the DeMille touch has to do with people stranded on an island fending off man and beast. Somehow going through the rigors of the jungle makes Claudette more attractive rather than less, she even has an indistinct but very definite nude scene under a waterfall. Herbert Marshall is fine as usual but the real standout is Mary Boland doing her best fluttery nincompoop, the periods when she disappears from the film it really suffers because of it.
I wasn't impressed by this movie, I didn't see it very long ago, and I barely remember it. I think it had a stupid ending too.
