Mid stream in his Charlie Chan gig Sidney Toler switches to villainy as Captain Krogan in this B clunker pasted together by cult favorite Eddie Ulmer. His absolutely vile character here ironically contributes to the film's entertainment as he eschews the meditative detective role he is so famous for in favor of leering greedy degenerate.
South Seas adventurer Mike Clancy (John Carradine) blows into town to see his brothel running honey (Gale Sondergard) when he gets word there's a 3 million dollar booty at the bottom of the sea that the shady Captain Krogan knows where it is but unable to access without Clancy's diving expertise. They enter into a deal with Krogan who intends to double cross. The madam and her band of hookers also go along to both complicate the deal and improve the scenery.
Isle of Forgotten sins is no Hurricane (39) but it does have a rousing tsunami to Deus ex Machina matters and a cast of unrepentant greedy characters wrapped up in the glitter of gold from the perverse captain to the bevy of hookers with flowers in their hair. Ulmer offers a couple of slight of hand moves and snappy dialogue to get around censors but the lobby cards for this piece of flotsam and jetsam featuring babes in sarongs and the leering desires of Toler is probably where the real genius was to be found.
