In 1877, Tahiti secretly plans to revolt against France, aided by British gun-runners who are no match for police commissioner Duvois. Now, prosperous American Mike Macklin is persuaded by Queen Pomare to help. As an excuse for sailing to San Francisco, he must enlist a "wife" of convenience; enter gold-digging showgirl Wanda Spence. Will Mike tame her or ignore her in favor of inauthentic dancer Mawaii? A hurricane's brewing, the natives are restless...and so is the volcano! Written by

Only Sam Katzman, Columbia's king of cheap, could have created a 3D movie as flat, boring and set bound as this one. Overlong at 73 minutes, Drums of Tahiti hardly takes advantage of the 3D process. Instead we're bored numb by a lackluster romance between Dennis O'Keefe and Patricia Medina.
