Typhoon Treasure was a British "quota quickie" which somehow wangled an American released in the Summer of 1939. The title refers to a fortune in jewels, gold etc. which was lost when a ship went down in a raging storm. Several interested parties are desirous of recovering the treasure, including hero Alan Richards (Campbell Copelin), heroine Jean Roberts (Gwen Munro) and various and sundry villains. The acting is pretty bad, but the underwater scenes are passable. Some of the better moments in Typhoon Treasure--including an attack by spear-carrying natives and a contretempts with an alligator-have been culled from earlier documentary and adventure films.
