When a smuggler (Rock Hudson) takes to the high seas in the historical era of Napoleon's threatened invasion of England, he meets a beautiful mystery woman (Yvonne De Carlo) and is induced to sail her to the French coast, unaware that she is actually a spy...but for which side? "Good color photography enhances the striking sea scenes and lavish interior settings" (Harrison's Reports) in this suspenseful costume adventure from action directing great Raoul Walsh. Product Specs: DVD5; Dolby Digital Mono ; 91minutes; Color; 1.33:1 Aspect Ratio; Year - 1952; SRP - $14.99.

The image is soft and the voices of the actors are somewhat high pitched. It almost sounds like a recording that's been speeded up ever so slightly or duplicated on inferior equipment. The Technicolor look of this 50's actioner has, surprisingly, been fairly well rendered. And the script is not to be believed. Now to the big question: did I enjoy watching the gorgeous twosome, Rock and Yvonne, in this movie? I hate to admit it, but I sure did. It was everything I expected. A romantic adventure, great costumes (open shirts, plunging necklines) and not a dull moment. They sure don't make em like this anymore. Darn it.

What a GREAT movie with Rock Hudson and Yvonne DeCarlo! They are so wonderful on screen together! And now that I've finished reading Rock Hudson's biography, it goes to show you just how brilliant & gifted of an actor he was! He has amazing screen presence in each of his films! I highly recommend this one!

Yvonne DeCarlo is so intoxicatingly beautiful in this movie! Such smoldering eyes! Absolutely loved her in this! She and Rock Hudson have such great on screen chemistry! I can't wait to see to rest the films they've done together!!

I'm really glad to have gotten this from Amazon! From growing up in the `80's, I've never seen these movies before or even gotten into watching movies from this era but wow, they just don't make them like this anymore. And by that I mean movies and their stars. I hope Hollywood can somehow bring back the glamor, elegance, sophistication, style & grace that the stars of the `50's had. What an example they could then set for this current generation.

Stars Hudson and De Carlo, alongside director Raoul Walsh, made the trip from LA to the UK to make this lively if hardly plausible Naploeonic war tale of espionage and seagoing action .It is based -loosely -on the Victor Hugo novel Toilers of The Sea .In it Hudson plays a Guernsey (English Channel Islands)fisherman turned smuggler "Gilliatt"and de Carlo is "Drouette",an English spy charged with the task of impersonating a French countess and wheedling details of the French plans for the invasion of England out of Napoleon ,who is due at her chateau .She enlists Gilliatt's aid in transporting her across the Channel and spins him a yarn about trying to get her brother out of gaol,as she does not trust him with the truth .Gilliatt falls head over heels for her and swallows her tale ,refusing all payment for his services .When he sees her the next day in her Countess clothing he feels betrayed and kidnaps her ,returning her to Guernsey.
When the truth is uncovered it becomes necessary to return her to France and subsequently seek to rescue her from the clutches of the French spy chief ,Fouche (Jacques Brunius).Also stirred into the mix is Gilliat's arch rival and fellow smuggler "Rantane"(Maxwell Reed)who is quite willing to sell her out and kill Gilliatt into the bargain

Its a busy plot and not terribly plausible but everyone concerned displays such brio and conviction that the audience is easily persuaded to ignore plot holes and improbabilities .Hudson dashes around looking manly while de Carlo smoulders engagingly .Brunius is suitably oily and theer is a nice cameo from Gerard Oury as Napoleon .The best lines go to Bryan Forbes(the future director) as Hudson's sidekick and he gives them full value in a lively peformance .

SEA DEVILS is a movie to rediscover but, beware, you must really be a fan of Raoul Walsh, Rock Hudson or Yvonne De Carlo to watch it nowadays. Because this fim is still not released in the DVD standard and the only VHS available here is of very poor quality with washed-out colors.

In addition to SEA DEVILS, Raoul Walsh made two other movies with Rock Hudson between 1952 and 1953 : Gun Fury and Lawless Breed, two westerns. Loosely based on Victor Hugo's The Toilers of the Sea (Modern Library Classics), SEA DEVILS is a period piece which takes place in the year 1800 on the isle of Guernesey between England and France. Rock Hudson is a British smuggler who falls in love with Yvonne De Carlo, a spy sent to France in order to discover when and how Napoleon intends to invade England.

As though the plot is rather interesting with its batch of misunderstandings, Rock Hudson being convinced that Yvonne De Carlo is a French spy, and with the appearance of Napoleon and his clever Minister of Police Fouché, SEA DEVILS rather captivates by its subtle mise-en-scene. The film is really an ode to Yvonne de Carlo's beauty you will indeed have the time to admire during the numerous crossings of the British Channel offered to the favored viewer by an aging Raoul Walsh still in great shape.

A VHS to destroy as soon as the DVD is available.

Veteran director Raoul Walsh was behind the camera of this average but nonetheless enjoyable swashbuckler cocktail. Yvonne De Carlo (looking quite fetching) is an English spy in Napoleonic France attempting to ferret out invasion plans and Rock Hudson is the smuggler who falls for her and unintentionally botches her both her plans and her cover. Shot in bright Technicolor, it's fun if you're not too demanding. Hudson was on the rise here at the beginning of his stardom but it's really the top billed De Carlo's picture here. Maxwell Reed as a traitorous smuggler and Bryan Forbes (before he became a director of such films as THE WHISPERERS) is Hudson's pal co-star.

The VCI transfer is adequate, nothing more.
