Quick Overview

Starring Rory Calhoun, Rhonda Fleming, Paul Kelly, John Abbott, Alan Napier

Directed by Sam Newfield



Print: color

Runtime: 66 min.

Genre: adventure

Picture Quality: B



Rory Calhoun, Paul Kelly and John Abbot are beachcombers/semi-derelicts on an unnamed

but well-policed tropical island. Kelly, a sea captain in disgrace, is ordered to pilot a ship full

of champaigne to Sydney, that has been lying in the harbor since its captain and most of the

crew died of plague. He takes the other two along and plans on sailing elsewhere to sell the

cargo. After anchors aweigh, they discover that Rhonda Fleming, the daughter of the

deceased captain, is on board. This complicates matters, as does a fire on board, as does

the discovery that the champaigne cargo is really water. They arrive at an uncharted island

ruled by Alan Napier, a sophisticated British gentleman who is several cards short of

playing with a full deck. Crazy as a bedbug. More complications arise, such as snake pits

and acid-assassination attempts. Napier likes to keep his island tidy...something Sam

Newfield was unable to do with this film as the director. At PRC, he was used to Buster

Crabbe and "Fuzzy" St. John riding in and connecting the dots.
