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.
The 1842 Edgar Allan Poe story was a follow-up to his earlier "The Murders in the Rue Morgue." Writer Michael Jacoby ditched almost everything except the Paris setting and the title. He changed the detective's name to Paul Dupin and moved up the clock 47 years (to 1889) than the time set in the book. See more »
With all due respect to the last person who commented on this movie. I fear what the reviewer does not realize is that Marie Roget is a Poe story. In fact, Poe created the crime story. While I have not seen the movie, I feel it is important to point out that the reviewer claims the movie relies on the 'dumb cop can't figure it out, so he relies on the old smart detective to solve the crime plot' while not realizing that Poe not only created the plot, this main detective Dupin is the genesis of it. Yes, Dupin is the predecessor of Sherlock Holmes. I did notice that some changes were made in the character names, and I do not doubt that the movie is sub par. However, it is important to note that this story and the other two Poe crime stories ares what lead to the great noir films of the 40's
