Quotes

Lucille Gordon: [Val is getting a diving suit ready] What are you going to do?
Val Stevens: I'm going down there myself.
Lucille Gordon: [slightly incredulous] You're going to dive?
Val Stevens: If they won't, I've got to. I'm the boss of this outfit - I've got to make them believe that I can do anything they can do, better than they can do it.
Lucille Gordon: But you're not a pearl diver!
Val Stevens: [laughs] With this diving outfit on, I am!

Bogart's Worst Film
22 July 2005 | by drednmSee all my reviews

This laughable 60-minute stinker offers pre-star Humphrey Bogart as a South Seas pearl merchant married to Margaret Lindsay. There might have been a decent story here, but it's been hacked to pieces. During the wedding there's a shipwreck, and washed ashore are a sneaky captain (Paul Graetz) and strange passenger (Donald Woods). Hilarious scene with the louvred door... The storm howls outside, but the slatted door keeps out all the wind, rain, and noise! Anyway, Woods and Lindsay seem to hit it off right away while Bogart is blithely unaware. Storyline includes striking pearl divers because of the "devil fish" and thieving natives. E.E. Clive is droll as the preacher, and Gordon Hart plays the weird grandfather. Bogart battles an ugly moustache and possibly the worst-looking octopus in film history. The acting is terrible across the board, with Gratez and Hart coming off worst. Lindsay and Woods are boring, and Bogart is just plain miscast. The plot twist at the end does little to save this one.
