South Sea Rose

South Sea Rose is a 1929 American comedy-drama film distributed by the Fox Film Corporation and produced and directed by Allan Dwan. This picture was Dwan's second collaboration with star Lenore Ulric, their first being Frozen Justice. Much of the cast and crew on Frozen Justice returned for this film.

South Sea Rose is based the 1928 Broadway stage play La Gringa by Tom Cushing which starred then unknown theatre player Claudette Colbert. Like Frozen Justice, this film is now presumed lost.
