COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

Cast (feature film)

1.
Raiders of the Desert (1941) as Arab woman
2.
Law of the Tropics (1941) as Dancer
A night-club singer on the lam marries a South American rubber planter to escape the law.
3.
The Wild Man of Borneo (1941) as Little Cairo
A braggart masquerades as a primitive throwback.
4.
South of Tahiti (1941) as Dancer
While not Maria Montez's first film with credit billing, this is the one that Universal used to launch her sex-sand-sarong (the sandals came later) career---"Maria Montez-The Screen's New Blaze of Excitement"--- that lasted over four years until she was usurped by Yvonne DeCarlo. The taglines here were just a warn-up for what was to come---"Daring Days! Exotic Nights! in a forbidden Pagan Paradise" and one even foreshadowed the title of one of her future films; "WHITE SAVAGE! Daughter of Eve...with a Soul of Satan! Lashing men and beasts to hate...and love...in a forbidden Pagan Paradise!" The plotline says four men, Brian Donlevy, Brod Crawford, Andy Devine and Henry Wilcoxin, drift ashore to an exotic island where they meet a beautiful native girl. All become more than a little smitten with Melahi (Maria Montez), with the exception of Andy Devine who is only concerned about not becoming a meal for her pet leopard. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
5.
Out of the Fog (1941) as Dancer
A racketeer terrorizes a small fishing community until he falls in love with a fisherman's daughter.
