~Plot Synopsis~
Inventor Harry Harper (Harry Houdini) travels to the South Seas, where there is buried treasure
belonging to a girl, Beverly West (Lila Lee). Naturally, others are after the loot, and Beverly's father
(Fred Turner) is being held captive by cannibals until she returns to them with a pearl that belongs to
one of their idols. The climax consists of Harper saving Beverly from a safe which has been lowered
into the sea.
