Storyline

Ann Dexter, daughter of an itinerant Haiti waterfront character, Carl Dexter, brings a golden idol, which her father her stolen at a voodoo ceremony, to Bill Buchanan, who is known along the waterfront as a man eternally on a treasure hunt. He agrees to let Ann accompany him in search of the treasure after a native he befriended gives him directions and certain voodoo secret charms. They follow an underwater passage to an island where they find a Pagan tribe. They learn that the golden idol is a burial symbol representing the dead and that hundreds of idols are at the bottom of the sacred burial lake. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

The company doctor was a local physician named Francois Duvalier who the next year would be elected President of Haiti and remain in office until 1971, and whose government was so dictatorial, murderous and, especially, corrupt that it spawned a new term--"kleptocracy". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bill Buchanan: [narrating] If you're a tourist on vacation, there isn't a more colorful spot in the West Indies than Haiti. You'll fall in love with Port-au-Prince. You'll shop in its famous markets where you can buy anything from a pair of lizard shoes to a live goat and you'll sail into the very harbor that Columbus first sailed into aboard the Santa Maria. But if you've got sunken treasure fever like I have, you'll spend most of your time in Haiti underwater.

Still waiting for the action/adventure!
27 April 2020 | by microx96002See all my reviews

Action adventure with a splattering of voodoo thrown in. John Agar and Rose Marie Stack searching for lost treasure on the island of Haiti. It has just about enough action to fill a 10 minute short. The rest is padded out with travelogue style scenes of historical sites, and both land or ocean wild life. Boring 4 out of 10
