Sarong girl Lamour is seen in living color in this adventure as the lone inhabitant of a remote island in the tropics. Preston is a hard-drinking ex-Navy man who gets hooked up as a submarine navigator for pearl diver Overman. When natives attack their sub, Preston is rescued by Lamour

and brought back to her tree-top island hut (every man's dream come true). Overman finds himself under pressure from an island official and tries to escape by setting a fire. A roaring typhoon, however, comes along and dampens his plans, bringing Lamour and Preston even closer together. The

quality is raised somewhat by the frolicking of an intelligent chimp and some admirable use of miniatures. The film's special effects were nominated for an Oscar.
