Bret's confined to a small isle settled by close-mouthed English immigrants who fear he's a spy or government agent. Bret, totally trussed up in a dinghy, floated up to their isolated dock, where a fisher-woman frees him. Bret, gambling on a Mississippi river boat, was KOed, then set adrift in the lifeboat. The isle's Mississippi Queen Ladybird is under duress too. What are the Brits hiding and why was Bret castaway? Written by
"Island In The Swamp" is one of my favorites. Bret ends up in bayou country, tied up and set adrift in a boat. Arlene Howell is Ladybird. Erin O'Brien is her sister Victoria. The local boys are suspicious of Bret because they have a secret. They are trading salvaged goods from a wrecked ship. It is Bret's dealings with the girls that interest me. He bargains with Ladybird. If she will untie him, he will show here how to use his cigar as bait by fixing a mixture. He confesses that he cannot teach her to read because he is not a trained teacher. Victoria is a raven-haired beauty whom Bret uses a mirror to gawk at. Being shy, she runs from him. Victoria runs off with a Cajun.
