Storyline

'Jumbo' Johnson hires Steve Singleton (and his boat, the "Seeker") to search for pearls on the coast of New Guinea. Johnson tricks Singleton, however, by supplying him with phony permits. Singleton loses his boat and is sentenced to jail. When released, Singleton teams up with boat-owners Daubrey and Sykes to find a downed plane and its cargo of gold bullion. While searching, they rescue one of the plane's passengers, Katherine Shelley, who's been captured by headhunters. Johnson now appears on the scene. Shelley guides him, Singleton, and the others to the underwater crash site. The gold is removed from the plane and now various schemes emerge as each man tries to gain control of it.

Six characters in search of a treasure...and all of them desperate double crossers!
2 October 2003 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

Crosswinds will not disappoint adventure fans...it has 6 characters in search of an illegal treasure each wants to steal...sunken government gold. All these characters are desperate and find themselves in more and more dangerous circumstances as they double cross each other to jockey for survival. John Payne fans will be happy to see him strutting his prime beef, spending half the picture in swimming trunks as he dives for gold, fights off cannibals, and gets involved with lovely Rhonda. And there's plenty of action fighting off his competitors as well by making a devil's bargain with the scoundrel(Forest Tucker) who stole his yacht.
