White Cargo (1942)

This movie is wrongheaded in about a dozen different racist, sexist, colonialist ways, starting with the fact that Hedy Lamar plays a native African girl (a lusty temptress) with her whole body tinted. And the white guy who's in love with her is all excited when the missionary tells him that he parents were Arabs--she's one of us!
