The presence of Ethel Waters, first billed in Carib Gold, and singing its title song
is enough reason to check this film out. Waters plays the mother of deep sea
diver Coley Wallace best known for portraying Joe Louis in the Joe Louis Story.
Wallace works on a shrimp boat and while diving discovers some long sunken
Spanish treasure ship at the bottom of the ocean. Wallace and others agree to
get the stuff and fence it surreptitiously. But one of the crew gets greedy,
steals some of it and commits murder in the process.
Some very familiar names and faces make their cinematic debuts like Diana
Sands, Richard Ward, and Cicely Tyson. Geoffrey Holder plays a Carribean
The production values are nil in this film which looks like it was shot with
chump change. But the acting all things considered is pretty good.
