Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Log of the Black Pearl was the 2-hour pilot film for an unsold weekly TV adventure series. Kiel Martin plays a successful stockbroker who gives up his job when he inherits the Black Pearl, his grandfather's yacht. He becomes a soldier of fortune, willing to rent out the boat and his services when adventure calls. Ralph Bellamy plays Martin's crusty captain and Jack Kruschen is his first mate. His first (and last) assignment is to find a missing treasure before the villains can claim the booty. Loosely inspired by the old radio series Voyage of the Scarlet Queen, Log of the Black Pearl was co-produced by Jack Webb.
