| exotic Caribbean story filmed on back lot.
The first, credited, full -length film directed by John Farrow (Mia's dad!). Extra exotic, due to its "location"... the Caribbean island of Caribo, the haven for criminals, according to the opening title card. "Jimmy" (Dick Purcell) is forced to run off to the getaway when he is forced to be part of a holdup back in the states. Jimmy starts working for the family that runs the inn, and tries to protect them, but bad stuff happens, and of course Jimmy gets caught up in more trouble. Starts out kind of fun, but moves pretty slowly, in spite of the fact that it's only 58 minutes. No real major stars in this one...must have been the "B" feature at the moving picture show. The story actually has legs...too bad they didn't put more into the script to make it a full length film. Some of the actors do a great job, but a couple of them are flatter than cardboard. June Travis, Victor Varconi, and Norman Willis co-star. Peruvian Carlos DeValdez made a ton of films in the 1930s, but died suddenly at age 45. Our star, Purcell, died of a heart attack at 35, according to wikipedia.
