In this South Seas thriller the two well known actors have roles that are opposite their usual type. I am accustomed to seeing Sidney Toler as detective Charlie Chan who always gets the bad guy, and John Carradine is usually one of the bad guys in the old adventure movies. In this sunken treasure hunt Sidney Toler is the main bad guy - a ship captain who deliberately sunk his ship full of gold so that he could come back later and take the gold for himself. John Carradine, as Mike Clancy, and his partner Frank Fenton, as Jack Burke, are two best friends that like to fight each other every so often just to bond as best friends. But the South Seas and sunken treasure would still be a bit dull without some gorgeous South Seas ladies, so prolific author and director Edgar Ulmer added an island brothel with a bevy of beauties to spice up the adventure. All we need now is a big Monsoon to threaten the lives of the whole cast and we wind up with a nail-biting, hair-raising adventure will keep us all on the edge of our seats as the men fight the men and the women fight each other and the monsoon threatens to destroy them all. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn and settle in a bit easy chair as the boys fight each other and discover who gets the gold, and who gets the girls.
