Any movie with lovely, talented Natalie Joyce is certainly worth seeing, and this is certainly one of her best efforts. While not in the same class, the other players, led by eagerly vivacious Margaret Livingston and glum Holmes Herbert also add to the film's appeal, as does the fine location photography lensed by master cameraman, Ray June.
For once in his career, Frank Hagney does not play the villain. Admittedly, he was originally cast to play the heavy (and acts out his early scenes with that devious intention), but his role was changed by producer Harold Shumate once filming got under way.
Despite the occasional intrusion of stock footage, director Joseph C. Boyle has made the most of a limited budget, thanks to the skill of his players and his astute use of real South Seas locations.
