A good adventure film
1 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently seen manfish on retrovision theater(internet movie archives)and i was confused that it was in black and white.now that i read a IMDb review for manfish i can understand why.it was sold to TV back in the late 50s early 60s,before the color sets came out.but who cares about the color it was a very good movie and a great performance by the late great Lon Chaney Jr.who plays a good guy for a change,also stars;Victor Jory,Barbara Nichols,and John Bromfield.the story is based on Edgar Allen Poes the gold bug.underwater treasure,greed,sharks,and lots of action.it takes place in the Caribbean,my guess Trinidad Tobago.the title is a little misleading,some people will think its a monster movie about a manfish because of the cast.but the title is the name of the boat that Lon Chaney and John Bromfield sail on,capturing sea turtles something that just isn't done nowadays.but this was 1956.Victor Jory plays a lecherous nasty villain named the professor.but then again Bromfields character is no saint either.there's a little treasure of sierra mad re plot too thrown in.but i would really like to see a color version of manfish.maybe someone can restore it,or its locked up in a vault somewhere.but manfish is non the less a good movie from allied artists(formally monogram pictures)8 out of 10.
