Ship of Wanted Men stars former MGM leading lady Dorothy Sebastian and burly, all-purpose villain Fred Kohler Sr. A shipful of fugitives from justice pulls up on a Pacific Island where there are no extradition laws. The island is a magnet for the scum of the earth, as well as a few honest guys who were framed. Into this den of iniquity swims socialite Dorothy Sebastian, who jumped off a yacht after apparently murdering her lecherous host. To remain on the Island, Sebastian is told that she must pay $5,000 to head honcho Fred Kohler -- and if she hasn't got the money, it is implied, there are other methods of collection. The heroine is not only saved from a fate worse than you-know-what by the strong, stalwart hero Leon Waycoff (later billed as Leon Ames), but it also turns out that she's not guilty of murder after all.
