Captain Spar has escaped to Martinique from Devil's Island, a penal colony in the Caribbean. He's soon framed for a double murder and must take to the seas during a hurricane in order to escape this latest misfortune. The full-cast performance with authentic accents, excellent sound effects, and music enhances the melodramatic tale, which also includes an old-fashioned romance. The story twists and turns until the boat reaches a castle that includes a torture chamber. This is an excellent example of American pulp fiction of the 1930s-40s, complete with garish red cover and illustration of damsel in distress with plunging neckline.
