Storyline

Andre Roosevelt, a cousin to US President Theodore Roosevelt, could afford to trot the globe filming safari and hunting expeditions, and footage from his travels and exploration was combined with some crudely-staged shots,in Hollywood, of him rescuing a ship captain---his sailing-ship captain E. Erskine Loch---and a woman from a cultish native tribe. Andre and Captain Benson (Erskine Loch) go into a Caribbean jungle with Rita de le Vega, whose dad was an explorer who lost his life among the savage Penitentes tribe, but left behind information concerning a treasure.

Using underwater diving equipment, Andre & Company find the lost pirate treasure in a stone idol, and head for their yacht with the savages in hot pursuit.

Andre Roosevelt, a cousin to US President Theodore Roosevelt, could afford to trot the globe filming safari and hunting expeditions, tossed in with some underwater work...probably done by others.

Footage from his travels and exploration was combined with some crudely-staged shots of him rescuing a ship captain---his sailing-ship captain E. Erskine Loch---and a woman from a cultish tribe. Most of which was very politically incorrect by today's revisionist standards.

But it played well in Paducah and Peoria. It was distributed by the Inter-Continent Film Corporation (for those who prefer correct company names)and was "Presented By" Luis Rojas De La Torre, one of the financial backers.
