City Beneath The Sea (1953)


 Budd Boetticher


 Harry E. Rieseberg (book), Jack Harvey (screenplay)


 Robert Ryan, Mala Powers, Anthony Quinn
The motivating factor behind City Beneath the Sea is an underwater treasure hunt. In 1692, an underwater earthquake sends the Jamaica city of Port Royal to the bottom of the Caribbean. Three-hundred-fifty years later, deep-sea divers Brad Carlton (Robert Ryan) and Tony Bartlett (Anthony Quinn) take the plunge near Port Royal, in hopes of recovering a million dollars in gold bullion that was lost in a modern-day quake. What Brad and Tony don't know is that their employer, steamship magnate Dwight Trevor (Karel Stepanek), doesn't really want the divers to find the gold. Trevor hopes to pull off a major insurance fraud, and has no qualms about killing his divers to get what he wants. Mala Powersand Suzan Ball provide the love interest, while plump Hawaiian entertainer Hilo Hattie offers some welcome comedy relief.

    OK film from my childhood

    I saw this picture when I was 5 or 6 growing up in the Florida keys and rememberd it as being better than it is. I have always been a fan of Quinn and was pleased to see the great Woody Strode in one of his earlier roles.
