Pink Barker (Richard Arlen) likes to gamble, so even though he's lost a lot of money to Big Schultz (Robert Gleckler), he wagers his ship and all its cargo for the man who makes it to port first. His big heart gets him into trouble though when he sacrifices winning the race to save a man floating aimlessly around the ocean in a raft. It pays off when the castaway informs him of an island inhabited by cannibals surrounded by oysters carrying large pearls. Fay Wray plays Daisy who loves Pink but hates his recklessness.
This is a fun adventure film which starts strong but peters out at the end. There are some great underwater scenes featuring an antiquated diving suit punctuated with laughable shots of dolls standing in for floating bodies.
