Movie Info

Set in the land Down Under but filmed at Sunland, CA, and on Catalina Island, this low-budget action-adventure stars one of the more forgotten of the singing cowboys, baritone George Houston. Fisherman Wallaby Jim has discovered a rich pearl bed, but his constant brawling gets him in trouble with friends and foes alike. Among the latter is one Rickter (William Von Brincken), an unscrupulous competitor who will stop at nothing, including murder, to get his hands on Jim's strike. In between numerous barroom brawls, George Houston sings "Hi Ho Hum," "Moon Over the Islands," and "The Lady with the Two Left Feet," all by Felix Bernard and Irving Bibo. Low-rent producer Bud Barsky proposed a series of at least four Wallaby Jim adventures,but only Wallaby Jim on the Islands was actually made.
