After a German U-boat is sunk near the end of World War I, it's captain, the only living member of the crew 15 years later, plots to retrieve the gold bullion that went down with the boat. He enlists the financial help of a woman who owns a waterfront dive, and a world-renowned undersea diver, but when the ship the woman bankrolls sinks, the two men sign on to an expedition bankrolled by another woman -- this time with scientific knowledge being her motive. They plan to use the expedition's equipment to dive to the wreck and bring up the gold.Written by

A short documentary sequence on undersea life, filmed in two-strip technicolor, running approximately 4 minutes, originally filmed to be used in The Uninvited Guest (1924), and shown at the shipboard party at the beginning of the third reel, is now missing and apparently lost. See more »
Somewhere, somehow, somebody decided that Ralph Bellamy was perfect to play the sort of role that would have suited Humphrey Bogart or maybe Robert Mitchum in a later era. So there he is, trying to come off as a cynical tough guy, a professional diver, who signs on for an undersea expedition financed by society playgirl Fay Wray. What he doesn't know is that the captain of their ship isn't searching for exotic marine life but a cache of gold from a sunken U-boat. It's a standard grade-B actioner, down to a fight to the death with a prop octopus. But watching the easy-going, erudite Bellamy desperately trying to play a hard-boiled adventurer is worth tuning in for.
