Underwater! (9-Feb-1955)

Director: John Sturges

Writers: Walter Newman; Hugh King; Robert B. Bailey

Music by: Roy Webb

Producer: Harry Tatelman

Keywords: Action/Adventure, Treasure Hunt, Sharks

Two SCUBA divers, Dominic and Johnny, looking for sunken treasure find traces of the Santo Bello, a 17th century Spanish trading ship lost in the Caribbean. They raise necessary money and are joined by Johnny's wife Theresa, Catholic archaeologist Father Cannon, and Gloria, boat owner, to locate the vessel and attempt recovery. The film showcases both fine underwater scenery and the legs of Jane Russell, and is otherwise thoroughly formulaic. Watch in widescreen only.
