An airplane crashes in an uncharted Pacific island, south of Tahiti. Three men survive, and one gets in love with a beautiful native girl. She is the the daughter of the tribe's leader, who may inherit the throne after the tragic death of her brother, and she is as savage as her pet leopard. The other men prefer to think about how to rob the tribe's gold treasure.
This one hour film is almost a paradigm for the average B movie from the 30s and 40s. It has some suspense, (it uses the great forest sets left over from The Wolf Man), and a fast pace and if you are into this type of mystery go see it, but don't go out of your way to find it. The performances, direction, etc. are all adequate and it progresses in the typical 'the dumb cop can't figure it out, so the smart young independent detective knows everything' approach. Generallly atmospheric and fun, though.
