THE DEVIL'S DAUGHTER / Sack Amusement Enterprises - 1939

It's Friday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. I started this month with THE DEVIL'S SLEEP, so, I decided that one good devil deserves another. THE DEVIL'S DAUGHTER was filmed in beautiful Kingston, Jamaica with an all-star colored cast and is a remake of QUANGA from 1936. That original poster must go for a whopping sum, it's pure awesome!

Eegah!! sent over a musical soundclip for our enjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button next to the little blue atomic dealie, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's our audio offering for... THE DEVIL'S DAUGHTER!

We get to see a lot of local color, including a cock fight, and lots of amazing jungle locations in and around Kingston!

The story's about young Isabelle Walton from Harlem, who inherits a Jamaican banana plantation and returns to manage it. Since her arrival though, there's been no sign of her disinherited half-sister Sylvia, who ran the plantation until their father's death.

Now in hiding, Sylvia schemes to regain her former place by manipulating local 'obeah' superstition. The pig has a human soul in it!

Hamtree Harrington plays Percy Jackson, he's concerned about the growing sound of drums in the distance...

There's even an afternoon at the track watching the horse races.

Sylvia has voodoo and revenge on her mind for Isabelle!

Isabelle is saved in the end by Jungle Jim and everything gets settled...

We'll end it with this great lobby card!..
