All right, get your coat. We're getting out of here. If those guys come back, I have a hunch they're going to use their teeth, not just their eyes.

This is episode 10 from the 1961-62 series, FOLLOW THE SUN. The series, which ran for 30 episodes, follows a trio of free-lance magazine writers. The three are played by Barry Coe, Gary Lockwood and Brett Halsey. The gimmick here is that they are based in Honolulu. Also with recurring roles are Gigi Perreau as their secretary, and Jay Lanin as their contact with the local Police. Of course the three newsmen are always getting involved with the usual assortment of nasty types.
Newsman Gary Lockwood is attending a late night party on a beach outside Honolulu. He sees something wash in with the surf. He has a look and discovers a young girl, Tsuruko Kobayashi. An ambulance is summoned and the girl is rushed to the hospital.
After several days the medical types and the Police are unable to identify the young woman. She has no memory of how she ended up in the water. After several more days she is released into the care of Lockwood.
Now some strange people seem to be following Lockwood and the girl. Lockwood calls his pal on the Police, Lt Jay Lanin. The Police pounce on the people following Lockwood and give them the once over. They are forced to release the men however since they have diplomatic immunity. They all work at a small Asian embassy whose country has just had a coup. The former gent in charge of the country, Keye Luke, had fled with 200 plus million from the treasury. The new government would like it returned.
Miss Kobayashi, had been the consort of Luke, so the new government figures she knows where Luke and the millions are. The girl's memory now returns and she recalls being in a small plane that had crashed just off shore. She was being taken to hook up with Luke who was hiding somewhere in Hawaii.
Now some men in Luke's employ show and put the grab on Lockwood. He is to help return Miss Kobayashi to Luke or go for a swim with the sharks. The girl is soon produced but talks Luke into letting her stay with Lockwood. Luke can tell that she no longer wishes to stay with him and agrees. He then boards his new yacht and leaves the Islands, but of with all cash of course.
Handling the directing chores here is Ted Post. Post is best known for a pair of Clint Eastwood films, MAGNUM FORCE and HANG 'EM HIGH.
