A group of treasure hunters (led by Dennis Morgan and Virginia Mayo) set sail for a mysterious island where rare black pearls have been known to exist. Mayo goes undercover as a missionary in order to ingratiate herself with the natives, and later has a complete change of conscience when she falls in love. Don't look for elaborate production values or Oscar-winning screenwriting, just enjoy the movie for what it is.
PEARL OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC is a fun movie, with it's exotic island locales and Virginia Mayo in blazing Technicolor. The cast also features Murvyn Vye, David Farrar, Lance Fuller, Basil Ruysdael and Lisa Montell.
The DVD currently available from VCI Entertainment is excellent quality for the price, with crisp picture and solid colour (and the reconstructed RKO opening sequence is much-appreciated). The disc also features a trailer for "Cattle Queen of Montana" starring Barbara Stanwyck, also available from VCI. (Single-sided, single-layer disc).
