Synopsis
When their ship is blown up in the Pacific in 1944, Doyle and Howell find themselves washed up on the shores of a tropical island. A group of natives rush at them and bow before Doyle, who reasons that because of his diving equipment they think him a god. Savages from a nearby island constantly raid the island and Doyle uses dynamite to sink their craft. He decides to stay and be treated as a god, but Howell knocks him out and drags him back to a passing U.S. ship.
