Tropic Zone is the 1953 classic that stars President Ronald Reagan during his acting days. Mercenary Dan McCloud (Ronald Reagan) is hired by oily exporter Lukats (John Wengraf) to disrupt the banana plantation run by the beautiful Flanders White (Rhonda Fleming). McCloud himself has a shady political history that has led him to hide out on a remote South American island, and he gladly hires himself out for the job. However, he finds himself taken with Flanders, and love turns him in new directions. Flanders likewise is enamored with McCloud, and afraid that he might fall for a local dancer decides herself to dance for McCloud and win him over. Sure enough, he sets out to save her rather than undermining her business. McCloud gathers together Flander's tenant farmers to stand against the devious Lukats. Tropic Zone is an adventurous love story, and because of its cast, has preserved its place in history.
