A contrived murder mystery that has only one original element, its Hawaiian backdrop. Corey is a gangster gone straight whose girl friend, Gates, kills one of his ex-partners because he was blackmailing Corey. Corey takes the rap, thinking he can beat it. Keyes arrives, trying to find out if Corey is the husband she lost at Pearl Harbor. Gates is mysteriously murdered; Corey escapes from jail to find the killer. Things become very confused at this point, with the ex-gangster letting killer Ahn take his life so Keyes will be free to start a new life, and so their son will still believe his dad died at Pearl Harbor, a hero. leave a comment
