Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Mon Ami Tim (My Friend Tim) is a French-language remake of the 1931 Columbia Pictures actioner Fifty Fathoms Deep. Thomy Bourdelle steps into the old Jack Holt role as Tim Burke, an experienced deep sea diver. Tim and his protégé Pinky (Franck O'Neill) have a falling out over the affections of predatory female Myra (Jeanne Hebling), whom Pinky eventually marries. Later on, Myra dumps Pinky in favor of a millionaire yachtsman. As fate would have it, both Tim and Pinky are pressed into rescue service when the millionaire's yacht is disabled in an accident. Most of the action highlights in Mon Ami Tim were lifted from the original American film, then inexpertly matched up with location shots lensed on a placid French lake.
