Somewhere in the South Seas: Kaloe (Jon Hall) is a sharkhunter who wants nothing but the fishing rights to Princess Tahia's (Maria Montez) island, but that at first seems to be impossible because the princess appears to be a hot-headed (but very attractive) young woman who doesn't fall to the charms of ordinary fishermen that easily. But thanks to some fixing by Kaloe's friend Orano (Sabu), a native to Tahia's island, the two of them get together anyways and fall in love before long ... much to the dismay of Sam Miller (Thomas Gomez), who was so far the only stranger allowed to Tahia's island, and who's more than  remotely interested in the pool in front of the island's main temple that's lined with gold and diamonds, and who thinks Kaloe might want to snatch this pool (which isn't evenm Miller's to begin with) from right under his nose.

Miller has a plan though, he has Tahia's brother (Turhan Bey) killed after he has played cards with him and Kaloe, then puts the blame on Kaloe, and this way tries to have him executed on the spot. Miller manages to make an escape though and hooks up with the local oriental detective (Sidney Toler in full Charlie Chan-mode), who before long manages to track down the actual killer, Chris (Don Terry), and trick him into confessing to everything right in front of Tahia.

After Chris has confessed, also about Miller's involvement in the murder, Miller knows he has reached the end of his line, so with a gang of armed men he attacks Tahia's island, then they get to work to collect the gold and diamonds from the pool in question - when an earthquake causes a landslide that hits the pool and kills Miller and his entire gang ...


Of course, this is a silly film, a simplistic romance and adventure yarn told in front of an exotic backdrop that doesn't have anything to do with real life in any geographical, ethnological or historical way - but the film is also a great piece of escapism in glorious Technicolor, where primary colours rule, the good and the bad are easily distinguishable, the hero is handsome and the heroine a hot-blooded exotic beauty. All of this doesn't exactly make White Savage a good film - but a great piece of nostalgic camp.
