Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. It's earliest documented telecasts were in New York City Wednesday 28 December 1948 on WPIX (Channel 11) and in Los Angeles Tuesday 20 September 1949 on KTSL (Channel 2). See more »

A good adventure flick
6 February 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Richard Talmedge plays Dick Nelson a sailor who was once shipwrecked on a uncharted island. While stranded he found an old vase which he brought back with him and sold at junk shop. A professor who finds the vase and knows what it is looks up Nelson and asks him to take him to the island. Thrills, chills and the right touch of comedy make this a breezy fast moving adventure. Where many cheap-o films of this time are hurt by lack of music this one moves so fast you don't notice it. The only real complaint is that the film ends much too quickly, surely they could have had a bit more happen once they reach the island, after all this film only runs 56 minutes.

Lots and lots of fun.
