Overview
Cinema idol Tyrone Power heads an all-star cast in this grand and thrilling adventure about the illegitimate son of a British aristocrat and his struggle to establish his birthright and claim the family fortune. Set in the 19th century, the story unfolds with young Benjamin (Roddy McDowall) forced into servitude by a wicked uncle (George Sanders). As a rebellious young man, Benjamin (Power) falls for a beautiful aristocrat (Frances Farmer) and is beaten as punishment. Fleeing his tyrannical uncle, Benjamin stows away on a ship and lands on an idyllic South Pacific island. There he romances an exotic native beauty (Gene Tierney) and earns a fortune diving for pearls with a fellow shipmate (John Carradine). But Benjamin's enchanted paradise becomes his prison as he yearns for revenge. When a ship arrives, bound for England, Benjamin steps aboard, heading home to seek the title and inheritance that are his.
