Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Virile Jack Holt was perfectly cast as the title character in this brawling South Seas drama. New Yorker Robert Kendall (Holt) inherits a pearl fishery from his uncle. It is located next to another fishing ground, and the men of both fisheries are constantly at odds. Kendall has to make a trip to the South Seas to claim the inheritance and to bring order to the area. As is usual for Jack Holt's characters, Kendall uses his fists to solve nearly every obstacle he discovers, battling two divers, Ricardo (Edwin Stevens) and Nilsson (Clarence Burton), and fighting for his rights. Kendall also falls in love with Rita Durand (Sylvia Breamer), the beautiful daughter of the owner of the adjoining fishery. Rita's father is murdered by a thief who wants to steal his fortune in pearls. Kendall tracks down the killer and brings him to justice. The grateful Rita consents to become Kendall's wife.
