Storyline

A flying boat has to ditch off an island in the Pacific. Along with the injured owner-pilot, the passengers include a policeman and his smuggler prisoner, a slimey limey witness against him, a physicist, and a globe-hopping good-time girl. On the island they find a fleet of derelict ships, farm animals tethered, and cameras in a lead-lined bunker and a stark realization soon dawns. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Pier Angeli was charming and Richard Attenborough was wonderful in this film!
15 March 2006 | by sandibiasoSee all my reviews

I give this film 10 stars because it deserves 10 stars. Pier Angeli was charming and showed that she was very much like her character. Her character was the heart of the survivors of a plane crash that are left to try to survive on an island that could be set to blow up. Richard Attenborough was very convincing as the character who will stop at nothing to get off the island. His tenacity was evident in that role.

My favorite scene is when Pier Angeli's character goes into the water to save one survivor from drowning. This shows her character's heart and strength. She couldn't have played this role any better.

I wanted others to see it so I sold it on Ebay. I hope the person I sold it to sells it to someone else and so on and so on.
