This uneven war story concerns an underwater demolition team in the South Pacific. The U. S. Navy sets sail for the Bikini Islands in hopes of destroying Japanese ships. When a radar submarine sinks, the Allies must destroy the sunken sub before the sophisticated equipment falls into enemy hands. Lieutenant Hayes (Tab Hunter) is full speed ahead before being slowed down by an affair with the beautiful native girl Reiko (Eva Six). Frankie Avalon provides a few laughs as Malzone, the Navy regular looking for paradise in the shell-shocked South Seas. Jim Backus plays the chief bosun’s mate who tries to rescue the stranded submarine Captain Carey (Scott Brady).
