Moon Over Burma ★★

Moon Over Burma (Louis King, 1940) 4/10

Standard plot has two men fight for the affections of a woman in an exotic setting. As a vehicle for Dorothy Lamour the screenplay either had her wearing a sarong or in this case she plays a stranded showgirl who has a timber manager (Robert Preston) in Rangoon fall for her while she has eyes for his gruff buddy and partner (Preston Foster). The romance is complicated by a cobra, a forest fire and timber floating down a raging river. Creaky hokum is saved by the three attractive stars.
