Storyline

"The Sea Tiger" is the name of a broken-down bucket of an old freighter, abandoned by the Japanese at the end of WW II, lying in anchor in a New Guiena cove. Co-owners Jenine Duval and Jim Klavier have hired Ben McGrun as its skipper and Joe Edmun as First Mate. Everone has designs on a none-too-secret secret safe which holds a fortune in diamonds, while a another group is after a cache of gold ingots, which the Japanese had hidden and left behind. Klavier is murdered and McGrun is accused and turns investigator to clear himself. The suspects also include Fat Harry the Bartender, and Willaims, a seedy insurance investigator from Sydney, Australia, who may or may not be all that honest.

Above average for Broidy Productions.

"The Sea Tiger" is the name of a broken-down bucket of an old freighter, abandoned by the Japanese at the end of WW II, lying in anchor in a New Guiena cove. Co-owners Jenine Duval (Marguerite Chapman) and Jim Klavier (Sam Flint) have hired Ben McGrun (John Archer) as its skipper and Joe Edmun (Harry Lauter) as First Mate.

Everone has designs on a none-too-secret secret safe which holds a fortune in diamonds, while a another group is after a cache of gold ingots, which the Japanese had hidden and left behind.

Klavier is murdered and McGrun is accused and turns private eye---(which ensures somebody will declare this to be incorrectly another noir)to clear himself. The usual suspects include Ralph Sanford, as Fat Harry the Bartender, and portly Lyle Talbot (Williams) as a seedy insurance investigator from Sidney who may or may not be all that honest. Mara Corday's "Lola" doesn't hurt the film any, either.

Archer, as usual, better suits being a Jaycee or Chamber-of-Commerce president than a tough man of the islands.
