East of Sumatra is a 1953 Technicolor Universal-International Pictures adventure film directed by Budd Boetticher and starring Jeff Chandler and Anthony Quinn.

Plot synopsis[edit]

Duke Mullane (Jeff Chandler), manager of a Malayan tin mine, goes to a little-known island to open a new mine in the jungle. Initially, the natives are friendly, especially dancer Minyora...who is soon to be married to local ruler King Kiang (Anthony Quinn). A series of unfortunate incidents changes Kiang's attitude to hostility, and Duke is stranded with his crew, Minyora, and his old flame Lory (Marilyn Maxwell), who is engaged to his boss.



Director Budd Boetticher later described the movie as “just a fun film to make all my friends some money”.[1]
