COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

Cast (feature film)

1.
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.
2.
The Wild Man of Borneo (1941) as Little Cairo
A braggart masquerades as a primitive throwback.
3.
Out of the Fog (1941) as Dancer
A racketeer terrorizes a small fishing community until he falls in love with a fisherman's daughter.
4.
Law of the Tropics (1941) as Dancer
A night-club singer on the lam marries a South American rubber planter to escape the law.
5.
Raiders of the Desert (1941) as Arab woman
