Storyline

Dominic Quesada and Johnny Gray, two SCUBA divers searching for sunken treasure off the coast of Cuba, think they've hit the jackpot when they find a 17th century ship on the sea floor. They need working capital however and Johnny is ready to hock his boat but his wife Theresa thinks they're off on another wild scheme that will leave them all poorer than when they started. She comes around however and are soon joined by Gloria, whose boat they will use and Father Cannon, a university professor and archaeologist. Although Dominic hasn't been completely honest with his partners, they may in fact be in the area of a major treasure ship. When they do find it, the ship is teetering on the edge of a 300 foot cliff and dangerous for even the most experienced divers. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The final hit song to emerge from an RKO feature was the sensual instrumental cha cha, "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" (music by noted French composer Louiguy), performed in the film by Dámaso Pérez Prado's renowned Latin band while Jane Russell danced. Billed as Perez Prado and His Orchestra on the RCA Victor single, Mr. Prado triumphed at the number-one "Billboard" spot for 10 consecutive weeks between April 30 and July 2, 1955. The same year on Coral Records, crooner Alan Dale (who did not appear in the movie) charted with a fourteenth-place vocal version (lyrics by Mack David). A '55 Decca release of the ditty by Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians featured vocalist Bill Flanagan. Actually, the song wasn't brand new in 1955. Singles had been on record racks in 1951 from Georgia Gibbs on Mercury, Cindy Lord on the MGM label, and Jimmy Dorsey and His Orchestra, with singers Pat O'Connor and Sandy Evans, on Columbia.

Goofs

When the boat is blessed, there are people and vessels in the background as seen from a high angle shot. These vessels disappear in the low-angle shot, even though they had masts, etc which should be visible. See more »

...oops....not that I was looking for this, but..
15 October 2006 | by (rowley ma) – See all my reviews

...about 10 minutes before the end of this fun movie, the lead actors are struggling underwater, when all of a sudden Richard Egan (..or his stunt double) reaches across the front of Jane Russell (..or HER stunt double) to free her from some impeding disaster, and as he pulls away his hand he pulls down her bathing suit ever so briefly and exposes the right nipple...

THIS is what HDTV wide screen technology can do..stuff that got by the editors years ago is now there for detailed and easy to see review.....DVDs make it even easier, but you have to catch UNDERWATER on cable..(..of course you can Tivo it and freeze frame whatever...)
