Shipboard caper has a reformed jewel thief tracking down $375,000 in stolen pearls while at the same time trying to teach a long-lost son to live the legitimate life. But it's too late for the kid, who made his mind up long ago to go into dad's business. Too many incongruities make this an
incoherent film, including one odd scene wherein the crooks are morse-coding each other by tapping on bridge tables and spelling out supposedly subtle messages by tapping a smoking pipe on teeth. Poorly directed.
