Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this tuneful comedy adventure, a free-spirited fellow with a keen eye for easy money is assigned to sail to a remote island and grab a great fortune in pearls which happen to be guarded by some very fearsome natives who are ruled by a sensuous dancing woman. Later the guards capture the would-be thief and tie him to the stake for an impromptu barbecue. Fortunately, the dancer uses her moves to save his neck and happiness ensues. Songs include: "Pied Pipers from Swingtown" (Jack Brooks, sung by Eddie Quillan, Fuzzy Knight), "Ridin, on the Crest of a Cloud" (Brooks), "Lovely Luana" (Don Raye, Gene DePaul, sung by Nancy Kelly, The Native Girls), "Island of the Moon" (Raye, DePaul), and "Camptown Races" (Stephen Foster, sung by Kelly, William Gargan).
