Movie Info

Based on the W. Somerset Maugham novel The Narrow Corner, the melodramatic adventure Isle of Fury is one of Humphrey Bogart's early starring roles. Valentine "Val" Stevens (Bogart), a reformed criminal who makes a living by diving for pearls in the south seas, gets married to Lucille Gordon (Margaret Lindsay). Meanwhile, Detective Eric Blake (Donald Woods) is sent to bust Val, but he gets shipwrecked in a terrible storm at sea. Val saves his life and rescues the ship's captain Paul Graetz. Eric falls in love with Lucille and makes friends with Val through the course of several sea tragedies before he realizes that he is supposed to arrest him. He then has to make a painful decision regarding his assignment and his sweetheart. E.E.

A bit absurd, and Bogie's teeny moustache is a major distraction, but interesting to see Bogart in a more sympathetic role than was usually his lot in the early years of his career.
