It's danger and intrigue in the world of deep-sea sponge fishing with this unusual idea for an otherwise routine programmer. Chaney needs some cash to buy a boat, so he borrows money from a rival fisherman. Regas lends the money, plotting all the while to sabotage Chaney's operation and

make it impossible for him to marry his girl, O'Neil. With O'Neil's help, the villain is defeated and ends up killing himself. The film boasts some interesting underwater footage as well as some nice location work on Catalina Island. The direction is okay for the fare, but some unnecessary comedy

mars the story. The heavy is not as well developed as he could have been. Remade in 1948.
