Bogie tangles with an octopus.
4 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An interesting south seas island adventure & romance with a young Humphrey Bogart in a uncharacteristic early leading role as a fugitive on the run but now living an honest & reformed life as a romantic adventurer. The movie has a rather good plot with some twists & surprises, a young handsome detective sent to get Bogart is suspected of being a fugitive & we discover later that Bogart is the real fugitive instead. Bogart is very convincing & authoritative & even romantic in his role, a foreshadow of things to come. He even sports a mustache. This film bears a slight resemblance to "Red Dust", it has all the earmarks of a Clark Gable vehicle. The only weak aspect of the film is the ridiculous & laughable scene where Bogart gets attacked by an octopus while diving during a pearl hunting expedition. Bogart later denied ever making this movie, but the evidence is there & has survived. The scene would've had much more stronger impact if Bogart got attacked by a shark instead of an octopus. This movie will appeal to die hard Bogart fans as well as to film buffs of B movies & obscure, forgotten movies. For only 60 minutes running time it's worth a viewing if you can find it. Good Luck!!!!!
