Law of the Tropics is a 1941 American drama film directed by Ray Enright and starring Constance Bennett, Jeffrey Lynn and Regis Toomey. By the time Bennett made the film, her career was in steep decline.[1] It was produced and distributed by Warner Brothers.[2]

The film is loosely based on the 1935 movie Oil for the Lamps of China, but the setting is changed from China to the Amazon jungle, and the tone is somewhat lighter. The conflict between a man's conscience and his corporate loyalty, which is a principal theme of the original, is less important in this film.

Jim Conway, working on a South American rubber plantation, goes to the port to meet his fiancée who he is expecting to come out to him. Instead he received a telegram from her telling him she has married another man. Disconsolate he heads to a waterfront dive where he encounters singer Joan Madison. He offers to take her to live with him on his plantation, something attractive to her as she is on the run from the law.
