After a German U-boat is sunk near the end of World War I, it's captain, the only living member of the crew 15 years later, plots to retrieve the gold bullion that went down with the boat. He enlists the financial help of a woman who owns a waterfront dive, and a world-renowned undersea diver, but when the ship the woman bankrolls sinks, the two men sign on to an expedition bankrolled by another woman -- this time with scientific knowledge being her motive. They plan to use the expedition's equipment to dive to the wreck and bring up the gold. Written by

Does this come under the heading of science or art? Whichever it is, you have definite possibilities.

Having made it a point to see all the available Fay Wray films that have survived, I can tell you with certainty that you will never see her looking more beautiful than in her role, here. A radiant presence in a world of dangerous characters, she plays a moneyed adventuress bankrolling a 'scientific' expedition to document marine life. Unknown to her is the real purpose of her crews' intentions. Surprises abound in this 'A' title from Columbia Pictures. I had a hard time telling the full scale from the miniature set. And for humor, Fay lectures Ralph Bellamy about becoming a gentleman, as he descends a ladder, and she'll lean WAAYY over to make sure she has his attention. Another delight from the pre-code era. Highly recommended.
