This adventure is based on a true incident about a group of American soldiers sailing across the ocean from France. Their cargo is $10 million in gold bullion, which will be used to fight the British in the War of 1812. Everyone aboard, however, gets gold fever and the war ends up on the
ship. The performances are adequate, particularly that of Knowles and his traitorous girl friend, Lansbury, but the action is too predictable, and once the gold fever sets in, there's not much left to the film--notwithstanding some nice Technicolor photography.
