In the post-war Hawaii, House Un-American Activities Committee investigators Jim McLain and Mal Baxter hunt down Communists.
Whilst there may, indeed, have been some so-called "stolen" scenes, the one in the restaurant isn't one of them. The bystanders were watching the action because of the loud and drunken behavior of Madge (Veda Ann Borg), and the actor who comes to their table.
I've had a belly full of this East Texas cotton-chopping jerk.
Jim McLain: Did you ever chop cotton?
Poke: Nah, I'm from the country club set. That chopping cotton's for white trash and niggers!
When the plane taking McLain to another island begins taxiing, the door is still partly open.
Opening credits are displayed as a storm rages and each section of credits is blown away by the wind.
The version released in Italy and some other European countries is retitled Marijuana and has John Wayne chasing drug smugglers instead of communists.
