A cowboy competes with a gambling tycoon on the Barbary Coast for the hand of a beautiful dance-hall queen. The 1906 San Francisco earthquake shakes up the plot and provides the climax.
Flame of the Barbary Coast was Ann Dvorak’s first film in the United States after spending much of WWII in England with her husband, Leslie Fenton, where she made several films and aided the British by driving an ambulance.
