The plot turns upon a lost diamond of great price, but mostly the film is a string of lively, unrelated escapades.
March 26, 2009
With mood and action the keynote of the John Houseman production, the direction by Fritz Lang plays both hard, developing considerable movement in several rugged action sequences without neglecting suspense.
June 24, 2006
A boy and a rakish smuggler search for a legendary lost diamond in a wonderfully stylised version of 19th century Cornwall.
March 25, 2006
But, golly, that screen play by Jan Lustig and Margaret Fitts is a thoroughly boneless thing -- a hodgepodge of odd and sprawling incidents without dramatic continuity or sense!
January 1, 2000
A suggestive, subjective account of an orphan boy's apprenticeship to a dashing smuggler.
