Loosely based on two Edgar Allan Poe short stories, "The Gold Bug" and "The Tell-tale Heart," this picture teams up Jory and Bromfield to find a hidden pirate treasure. After they find the treasure--and Jory has made good use of the Manfish, Bromfield's boat--Jory kills Bromfield, tying

the body to an oxygen tank. The picture was actually shot off the coast of Jamaica, lending a picturesque background. Otherwise, the film fails to capture interest for too long a period, with performances void of believability. This film features Barbara Nichols in her first film role, a tough

songstress. Calypso numbers include: "Big Fish" and "Goodbye" sung by Clyde Hoyte, and "Beware the Caribbean" by Albert Elms.
