Synopsis
Cecil Matthews is a bank employee who is sick of his job. He steals $30,000 and flys to Hawaii where he plans to charter a plane to Papinee, an island he found in an old "Islands of Paradise" book. The bank notices the theft before he can get to Papinee so he hijacks a mail plane to fly him there. Once there he kills the pilot and settles in at the deserted village. What Cecil doesn't know is that the reason the village is deserted is that the Island of Papinee was chosen by the Government to use in a missile test. The next day he is destroyed when the bomb is detonated on the island.
