Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Popular Australian film star Chips Rafferty heads the cast of King of Coral Sea. His character name, in fact, is King, Ted King to be exact. Our hero lives and works on Thursday island, center of Australia's pearling industry. The pearl-diving element of the story is forgotten as King confronts a gang of crooks who are busily smuggling migrant workers onto the island. The supporting cast is largely made up of local Australian stage and radio celebrities, whose fame meant little to American audiences. The one tangible selling angle of King of Coral Sea is its superb location photography.
