Offshore near Caboblanco, Peru, an explorer of sea wrecks is murdered. However, local authorities decide that the official cause of death is "accidental drowning." Among the skeptical is Giff Hoyt, an expatriate American, longtime Caboblanco resident and popular innkeeper. Giff's interest is further piqued when Marie arrives in town. Her passport is confiscated by the corrupt authority, and Giff protests. Furthermore, a Nazi named Beckdorff lives in a well-fortified compound near town, and he might be responsible for the explorer's death. Beckdorff himself seeks sunken treasure in the area, as well as protection from local interference. Can Giff Hoyt stifle the evil Beckdorff, save the lovely Marie, and possibly even locate sunken treasure?Written by
When the diving device is raised from the deck(at around 3 mins), the winch is rotating in the wrong direction, and when the capsule is lowered into the water, the rotating direction is the same as when lifting. See more »
I don't want that girl to die here like the Englishman.
How can I be responsible, whether she lives or dies? Death comes to us all, Giff, at one time or another. And to die in Caboblanco, well... there's always that colorful cemetery on the beach.
I'm glad you think it's colorful. Because if anything does happen to that girl... rest in piece.

A much longer version of this film was released in theaters in Europe. The Clifton James character is featured in several scenes in this version. His entire role was cut out in the shorter American version. See more »
A big fan of j lee thompson and charles bronson i found this movie worth a watch. its very layed back and old school like a visit to your folks.its south American local and tropic feel was a real plus and Charley was in in good form.but thompson was slumming it a bit,maybe enjoying the sun to much.the pace was slow even for this sort of film.
i think i could of enjoyed it more if the copy i had was any good, but it is poor with only the widescreen formate save it from being unwatchable. it is such a rare movie that i was happy enough to see it at all.
if you enjoy 70's style movies and gumshoe movies give it a go its good late night fodder.
