| South Seas escapism in glorious Technicolor
Fans of buried-treasure stories and those who have a fondness for 19th-century ships in full-sail will find ample diversion in this modest but entertaining movie from 1952. While too much effort is devoted to shipboard rivalries, (obviously staged on studio sets), there are points of interest en route such as John Ireland battling a shark, Yvonne de Carlo doing a hootchy-kootchy dance, and Lyle Bettger getting ten lashes across his bare back. (This flogging ranks 54th in the book, "Lash! The Hundred Great Scenes of Men Being Whipped in the Movies.") While Ireland spends much of his time bare-chested, he simply lacks "hunk" status and one can't help but wonder how much better "Hurricane Smith" might have been with Jeff Chandler or Fernando Lamas as its leading man. Even a bit-past-his-prime John Payne would have been an improvement since his shaved-and-oiled chest always looked great in Technicolor.
