"The Sea Hornet" was a merchant ship sunk, supposedly by a torpedo, less than a mile off the California Coast during World War Two. Six years later when his buddy is killed, attempting to blow up the sunken ship, on the orders of Suntan Radford (Adele Mara) and Tony Sullivan (Jim Davis), deep-sea diver "Gunner" McNeil (Rod Cameron) has his suspicions aroused... especially since Suntan is the daughter of the ship's captain that died when the ship sunk, and Sullivan was a crew member. Plus the fact the ship had over a million dollars in cash on board. During the course of his investigation, he becomes romantically involved with Ginger Sullivan (Lorna Gray, the singer at the swanky resort hotel on the coast near the sunken ship. —Les Adams <firstname.lastname@example.org>
for Rod Cameron and Adele Mara
"The sea hornet" is another Republic cheapy directed by Jo Kane. But sadly with no inventive direction, even with Bert Glennon as the cinematographer. The only interest in this oldie cheapy is Rod Cameron fighting again and again, and I always admire Adele Mara. But that's all folks, only reserved for forgotten B movies fans. The song in the beginning immediately rings me a bell, it sounds like the Kingston Trio who began later in 1957, but they really sing the same way, we can even hear the words "early in the morning" which will be another song by the Kingston Trio.
