A Daughter of the Congo (1930) [Lost Film]

The central character is Lupelta, a beautiful mulatto girl who has been stolen as a baby and brought up among the savages of the jungle. The story opens with Lupelta on her way to the village to marry the tribal chief. She has paused to bathe in a brook when she is surrounded, captured ad made a prisoner of slave hunters. In the meantime, Captain Paul Dale, colored U.S. Army, and his first lieutenant have been sent by their government to operate a constabulary, and are on a reconnaissance. They encounter the slave hunters and promptly take their prisoners and rescues Lupelta. She is taken to a mission school where she succumbs to learning and soon becomes a popular maid in spite of her frequent inclination to revert to the wild life of the jungle.
