Clipper ships taking the shortest route between the Mississippi and the Atlantic often end up on the shoals of Key West in the 1840s. Salvaging the ships' cargos has become a lucrative business for two companies -- one headed by a feisty young woman. Then she falls in love with the captain of a wrecked ship while he recuperates at her home. She travels to Charleston and is charming to the man most likely to be head of the captain's company, thinking she will be able to get the captain the position he wants on the company's first steam ship.Written by

There is profit in shipwrecks along the coast of Georgia.
Produced and directed by the legendary Cecil B. DeMille. A rough and ready sea drama with very good special effects. Salvagers compete for the cargo of ships wrecked in the reef off the coast of Georgia. Some of the ships go down not by nature, but by the hand of greedy men. An extraordinary finale with an attack of a giant squid. A star studded cast sustains the interest in this stormy and mobile movie. Notable cast members: Raymond Massey, Paulette Goddard, Ray Milland, Susan Hayward, Robert Preston and a bland John Wayne. Yep, the "Duke" has an important role, but does not headline or carry this film. I've seen this at least six times since childhood and I still think it is great. See for yourself.
