Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Even someone who isn't conversant in French will probably be able to figure out that La Rose de la Mer translates as The Sea Rose. Fernard Ledoux stars as the rough-and-tough captain of an ancient sea vessel. Outwardly lovable, Ledoux is actually a cold-blooded conniver to whom life is very cheap. First mate Rogert Pigault figures out that the captain intends to scuttle the vessel and drown the crew, the better to collect a huge insurance settlement. It therefore comes as no surprise that the treacherous Ledoux is hoist on his own soggy petard.
