Storyline

"The Sea Hornet" was a merchant ship sunk, supposedly by a torpedo, less than a mile off the California Coast during World War Two. Six years later when his buddy is killed, attempting to blow up the sunken ship, on the orders of Suntan Radford (Adele Mara) and Tony Sullivan (Jim Davis), deep-sea diver "Gunner" McNeil (Rod Cameron) has his suspicions aroused... especially since Suntan is the daughter of the ship's captain that died when the ship sunk, and Sullivan was a crew member. Plus the fact the ship had over a million dollars in cash on board. During the course of his investigation, he becomes romantically involved with Ginger Sullivan (Lorna Gray, the singer at the swanky resort hotel on the coast near the sunken ship.

A good Republic movie
8 March 2008 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I discovered this interesting little movie yesterday.

A mix up of film noir and modern adventure. It takes place among high sea divers in search of a bullion. Rod Cameron is as good as ever. So is Jim Davis as the bad guy.

I also found an exotic perfume in this flick, even in black and white.

Actually, it's not a surprise. Herbert J Yates produced it.

Remember "Fair Wind to Java" directed by the same Joseph Kane. Joseph Kane who shot especially western movies, not thrillers or adventure films.

Just Vera Ralston is missing.
