When the film begins, there is an accident and Nick (Jack Holt) is nearly killed while diving to unsnare the ship's anchor. In the process of saving him, fellow diver Toby (Edmund Lowe) ends up losing his arm! After this, Toby finds he's unable to find work and is flat broke and hungry. Then he learns of some crooks who will hire him for some very lucrative dives...no questions asked. Now, however, this puts him on a collision course with Nick, as Nick now works for the harbor police.
When you watch this film, it is incredible to see that back in the 1930s, if you got maimed on the job there wasn't a lot of recourse other than to starve. Given this, it's easy to see why Toby gave in for the easy money. Overall, a decent film and a chance to see Bela Lugosi play a real mean character! Nothing brilliant here...just brisk entertainment.
